Excellent stuff. I'm looking forward to seeing it at the wobble. I'll never be able to ride it though. I'd need a pilots' licence with the size of the thing.

Nice to see another Fuquay. As a matter of interest did you find the spacing on the rear brakes wide for setting up standard V brakes?. Enjoy the ride.

no problem at all - which was odd to me as normally I seem to have problems setting up V's as for some reason there never seems to be the right tension despite fiddling with spacers, spring tension, grub screws etc :lol:
