Lovely bike, very clean lines and well spec'd.

However, please sort out that seat quick release position. For some reason quick releases not properly tucked away drives me mad :evil: .

Sorry about the rant nice build.

Not sure on that one. I know he snapped it up before it ended up at first flight. I think he made a wise decision. It has the cut down and re-tooled shimano hubs, etc. Kind of bike you keep looking at and noticing something new each time. He just got it so he hasn't gone through it yet. I rode it and it does ride like a dream, though. Just thought I'd share since I sniped some pix during my jaunt to the tavern... :wink:

Cheers.

Jon bought it... I ened up going for the Dr. S Funk, instead (it will fill an hole in my heart that has been empty for many years).

But I really love this bike. I always take it for a few hot laps whenever I am over at his place. He is too busy running his shop to do any lurking here. So, I took it upon myself to share a picture of this beauty with the rest of the boys.

As for the seat binder... being a past BMX champ he knows a bit about 20 inch set-up. MTB maybe not so much. Don't tell him I said that. :lol:
