Well to start I came across a Parkpre Sceptor Comp frame/seatpost on Ebay and it was local pickup only. Bonus thing was it was only a few miles away. After being the only bidder I got it for a great price. Even better thing was the seller works near me and dropped it off! I was unsure what route to take as I needed a commutor bike as I have a few other bikes but all are a little naff on the road. I am not a fan of "road or Hybrid" bikes as a rule. I build this with mainly new parts. Now before I get shouted at about the forks,, I 100% know they are not Pace. However I bought them blind. All the other forks I have are disc only, and wanting to use V's these will do the job for now.
Comments welcome good and bad, and also any ideas on improvments!

Needs forks with a longer axle to crown length. The head angle is so steep it will ruin the handling.

Ok, so I have changed the forks, but the stem on the frame is huge. This forks have a 215 stem and still only room for a few spacers.
