The coil spring at the base of the seat tube has collapsed, so that needs to go, as does the rear reflector thing. Other than that, it looks good.

I am about to take delivery of a C16r frame, to build up for my daughter, so I'd be interested to see how you get on with yours.

Nice to see someone else's garage is as cluttered as mine :wink:
