I'm glad I'm not the only one who spotted the tyres, I was feeling pretty nerdish there for a minute.

Nerdish? Is that a new religion, with people who only ride bikes from the 1990's? Whatever.

Anyway, the bike looks absolutely fantastic.

Nothing to apologise for Steve, they are the wrong way round - glad someone pointed it out! You have an eagle eye BTW and I am a idiot :lol:

Handle bar sin corrected and ridden around Surrey at the RB National 8)

Very impressed with the bike, more than able to cope with the single track and drop-ins, smooth ride, no flex in the BB and it likes climbs - those short chain stays mean it just keeps gripping - no loss of traction (did fall off on a short sharp climb - as the bike out climbed my skills. It is going to be great in muddy conditions too I think with the traction and clearance.

A keeper I think :)

Don't know - BB was installed in the frame - can take the cranks off tomorrow and measure it for you though.
