Beautiful! With all the right Syncros stuff on it, this surely will be a great bike! What's your idea on brakes? As you intend to use it, instead of making a mint garage queen, I can imagine you'd go for V brakes?

Not made my mind up on the brakes yet but they will definitely be cantis.

Don't like to have a hanger on the frame and not use it, and no I won't be putting mudguards on just because I have mounts :lol:

Seeing all that lovely Canadian-ness (a word?) makes me want to stand up and sing...


ahem.....

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


signing in for updates. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Don't get me wrong the bike wasn't tiny but just felt a shade small :wink:

Small update,

been tinkering in the garage tonight and set about my revolution cranks.

They were very scuffed and in need of a repaint so I attacked them with nitromors and a wire wheel.

Partly because it needed doing and partly through curiosity and I needed to satisfy myself that the underlying steel was sound.

It is :D
