'Full suspension' Hmmm.. ... where's the hacksaw :lol: :lol: , good luck with that,, :) be interesting to see.. :)

I am pretty happy with the build so far,, although the brakes and the levers, I think I'm going to change.. :)

Weigh it in and it was just over 25lB which is not bad :) not really built this as a weight weenie , just built it up 'nice' ;) ...

Sweet 25lb is a very respectable weight! 8) Doubt mine will be that light..

When I say "full suss" I will not be taking a hacksaw to it or anything drastic like that.. it will however have bouncy bits at both ends ;) (keeping it period correct too)

great work there shouldn't like that (I like my clockworks plain in the main) but it works well and a great weight for what is not really a light frame.

Looking good, :wink: 8) some nice components there, and it'd be interesting to hear how it compares to the high-end P20 (as Clockwork's always got a good write up).

Loving the poetic license (orange touch-ups :lol: :lol: :lol: ) on pic no. 9. smoooooth :lol: :lol: :lol:
