Rides well, seams to be better at climbing than going down hill but that might be me.

still a few changes to make, I want some tri bars, and some cool cranks, going to stick with the double, feels like i have to work rather than spinning in a low gear.

Thinking of making it a US only build with SRAM at the moment its all Campag. And the wheels just seam to spin for ever. Its had a couple of outings and they seam to end up with a few tweaks needed usualy moving the breakleavers up on the handle bars, I will get them in the right place soon.

Very nice. Good to see it's getting some proper use at last.

It's probably one of the most travelled Slingshots. It was bought in the States and then sent over to the UK, I then took it back to the States for a while and then bought it back to the UK. Has more passport stamps that the new Republican vice president candidate!
