I can't help but think that a collection of parts like that deserve to be hanging off a better frame than a Clockwork, but its certainly an original bike!

Wow what a mind blowing build. the gold/orange is a bit much but its different and a lot of effort has got it like that. Impressive stuff. Incredibly light too. "Still think that saddle looks like a razor blade" :lol:

I've always wondered, how do your forks feel compared to say Pace or Judys? I should imagine they track better and are lighter but travel is less? They suit the bike quite well.
