picked up a couple of frames at the Twizzler - one is still in my shed, the other was given to my mate Phil, down in Devon

made out of a Trek that had been squished by a car

stealthy!

That's a real parts bin special, but somehow looks pretty cool. Nice.

Stealthy. Those frames will take some abuse.

I like the fact you've put a fork on that a lot of people would say is too long for the frame...8)

By the time the riders on board there should hopefully be just enough sag to bring the chainstays a touch below the horizontal. Spot on.
