Love it

But being critical but the stem is a bit "meh". Appreciate you have just thrown it together though.


Sorted stem and bars. Better?

I like it.

That is a much more traditional / classic look.

You enjoying it then?! Another British steel convert? Whilst its only aesthetics it does look a lot nicer now in my humble opinion.

Absolutely loving it. A pleasure to ride something not just because it's my size but so well thought out and put together.

I have something else in the pipeline also. But doing a more respectful job next time. Still one in one out rule so grisley has to go. New one should be a bit special if I don't balls it up.

Cleaned up the lines, m732 levers. Changed the wheels and tyres. Getting blacker. Should the post QR go?

Black chainring, and u brake? Then done..........for now.

Such a lovely thing, seemed a shame to cover it in guards, lights etc.
