Hi guys,
Just a quick update on a few of my current projects. Slow going due to work but they are slowly getting there!
First up its my Shock-a-Billy project. Almost finished now- just waiting for the front wheel to return from the wheel builder and a front mech from Scant.
Will post full spec when its finished, hopefully by the end of the week :wink:

Ignore the mis-matching wheels, front is an old spare thats on just to keep it of the floor!

I'm desperately looking for a green Ringle cage and QRs to finish it off- anyone??

Sorry about the shitty pictures, I cannot get broadband out here so I have to reduce the quality. I'll post up some good ones when its finished.

What do you think?

I was looking to thin down the collection as I have spent far too much lately but then I remembered about a car I had stashed away that I don't use and sold that instead. I then eased my spending guilt by sending the missus shopping with my card and told her to buy what she wanted! A little extreme but I'm now guilt free, she is happy and I get to keep the bikes.
This is it though- once this is finished thats me done!

Congrats on the new arrival Pickle- really cute. I guess you won't be getting much sleep at the moment, everyone told us that they start sleeping through at about 12 weeks- which seems a hell of a long time away after a couple of sleepless weeks. Its all bollocks, we are three years down the line and are lucky to get more than 2 hours unbroken sleep- only had 3 nights when they have slept through, thats once a year matey!
Just a little warning- you'll get used to it ;)

Cheers matey!

Lack of sleep really hit me this morning......took me half an hour to lift myself out of bed :lol: Most nights he only needs feeding/changing twice, buts its the broken sleep for me and the wife that is the killer.

Pro Plus sales at our local Tesco are about to increase......
