Hello!

This should be my last classic build-up for some months and I hope, my brother will use it as a city-bike. Because he's an architect I thought that this unusual frame would suit him. If not, he isn't my brother any longer ... :wink:

I'm just waiting for the black LX-front-derailleur, than it's ready to change the owner.

Cheers Christoph

Scary looking bike. Remember, Architects study the rudiments of structural engineering....

Not much scary about it. That rear end is seriously oversized. As long as he doesn't try to jump off a house, it'll be allright.

Thank's for your compliments. To be honest I haven't invested too much time for the build-up; it's just for my brother... :wink:

It's funny, I thought the same. I'll use red-anodized skewers but maybe just at the rear like the biological ideal.

Have a nice weekend, Christoph

Just noticed you have a little red with the swiss flag 8) 8) A lovely build with no over kill unlike some that burn your eyes out with ano
