Well, in my possession anyway..... :D
Built it up from scratch on friday night, and today she made her debut on the road.
As you can see its veering towards a commutery type ride. It weighs in at 11.8kg and I have to say its an absolute joy to ride, real flying machine. :D
Single chainring and single canti brake, haven't tried that in the wet yet though. :?
To start off her new life, a wee 24 miler around West lothian and the Forth Road Bridge, stopping off for a much needed refreshment along the way.
:lol:

Big thanks to a couple of guys from the forum that supplied me with reasonably priced very decent parts. :D
Here's my original thread when I got the bike. :wink:

Yeah, I need a cable for the front, didn't want to chop up a perfectly good rear length! :lol:
I also need a stem that takes a canti brake set up, as I don't want to use a V caliper. :wink:
