Here are my 2 current works in progress. The orange is a steel prestige(i think)currently in comuting guise due to its 'fragile' seat tube.
Rocky mountain is 'we' believe a Hammer(maybe).
Both are built up using mostly bits sourced from the forum.
Haven't managed to ride either yet due to lack of chains and cables

i really like the angle of attack on that rocky, looks fast yet comfortable due to your component choice.

some well thought out bikes you got there.

Cheers James. Initially I tried fitting a road chainset to the orange as i'm going to use it to commute,but it was nearly as big as the frame!

Agreed on the Flite but I like the look with the really low stem and no barends. Orange is looking sweet too :D
