Here are three different frames, all built using the same components (other than BBs and seatposts), and all riden in the last three weeks! The newest is the GT LTS-3, whih was built up about 10 minutes ago! My first full susser, and so far I'm quite impressed.

Next oldest is the Klein Attitude. It had a suspect frame which is why I replaced it, though it turns out the frame is ok, and the creak/click noise was the chainring bolts.

Finally the DMR Trailstar. I had this frame for years and built the parts up over time.

Here are the pics!

I must say that GT is a nice-looking bike, but is that the Klein after its operation? It still has a replaceable drop-out? They must be pretty good welders where you sent it to.

And the things people will do to get an excuse to go out riding, I don't know!

I thought the corner cupboard and drawer setup looked a bit odd...

Cheers for the comments. It is a nice kitchen, however the people that installed it (before I bought the house) decided that the corner cupboard didn't need to open properly. Not helpful!

I hope the wife does come on here and see that I took a pic of the bike in the kitchen. She'd kill me :lol:

The pic of the Klein is pre-surgery. I think that was the day I first built it. I'll see if I can get an "after" photo of it.

Nice. Quite a good idea to component share. But I did it for 6 months on two Merlin's and it did my heasd in in the end and I flogged one frame. Wish I'd bought more components instead. :oops:
