Here it is. all finished (for now- few things i want to change). Bit of a rush job this one as I only started planning and buying parts on Monday. Idea was to have a fully functioning bike by the end of the week to take to the meet down in Dalby on saturday. Its just been finished and here are the first pics...

Ignore the pedals- fished out of the bin just to try it out :)

Like I said, it was a rush job and some things will be changed over time so go easy :wink:

Cheers

It's crap. I think you should give it to me to save yourself the embarrassment of being seen on it.

Seriously: It's very tasty (and I don't normally 'do' Konas). 8)

Looks pretty darn sweet, although the seat-post isnt quite up to scratch.

Im seriously smitten by SS bikes atm, quite fancy building one myself....

The only thing I don't like are the pedals. The rest is very, very nice Doc. Magic gear? How tight is that chain?
