The wheels maybe a tad weighty but that looks quite cool. Sure you have the makings of something really nice there.

Although the wheels are not to my taste they are a great match for the frame. How does it ride?

it does ride really nice, not used to the hard ride as i normally ride xc fs bikes,

but do need to get a few bits replaced over time, not sure of the age of the Teny alu rims im sure someone on here knows, dont think thy are too old though.

just wanted something that looked a little different and attracted looks, and it already has on its first ride :lol:

I like it. Even the chainset and stem which otherwise might look a bit budget add to the 'industrial' look.

It probably isn't as light as it could be, but then if we wanted an easy life we'd just stay at home and watch TV!

Good job. 8)
