Just got sent a photo of a new bike part I'm having built for my modern Seven. In the words of Mr Rolf Harris, 'can you guess what it is yet?':

You're no fun are you! First guess and it's all over. Yup, a 20mm Black Sheep Eon fork with a few interesting twists from the standard one. Stunning welds, every bit as good as the ones on my frame (slightly less good photos):

Sorry do you want me to delete that? :lol:
Very nice 8) Be interesting to see what you make of the ride. A Jones would probably, make it on to the 'lottery list' simply out of curiosity :D

This bike is turning in to my lottery bike, fortunately I had a big redundancy payout a few months back and so it's recompense for all the shit I had to put up with a hellish firm of evil twats! The bike is now coming together but will be another couple of weeks before it's all in the country, so far we have:

Seven custom (half a Sola, half a Verve - it's more burly than a Sola so they didn't want to use double butted everywhere)
Black Sheep truss forks
Jones H bars
Moots stem
Moots seatpost
Brooks Ti Swallow
Actiontec cassette and rings
Hope proII 20mm front on EX823 ust
Hope singlespeed rear (running as a dishless 6 speed) on XM819 ust
Royce BB
Frog Ti
Dura Ace gears (forge mounted shifters)
Hope minis
Cooks cranks and skewers

Full photos to follow....

I saw those as well, now if they came with a 20mm front axle I would have bitten his hand off!!

I'd be wary of Royce wheels. I had a set of the original non disc ones, which the bearings didn't last very long. :? There was no adjustment on the bearings either.
Nayfinesse has also had his rear Royce bearings replaced about 4 times now at about £50 a time by Royce :shock:
