Nice....looks lovely all cleaned up. Personally I'd forget the girlfriend and use it myself. :twisted:

Great choice of tyres too..I've Big Apples on the freight bike I use for work, they seem to last for ages and roll nicely :)

Good job there.

Looks really good for a commuter. Just the kind of thing I need to do myself.
