Ok ... gonna basically cram my entire build thread into one post since PB wont co-operate.

Synopsis:

I got this frame locally a few years back. The original owner bought the bike and immediately had it modified to rear cantilever brake by Tony Beeks in Toronto. There are very few handmade Spesh bikes and this is one of them. Took forever to find the proper tires and rims ... they were original only to this bike. It had some little dings in the top tube and it just took forever to get everything sorted.

Excellent work!

Teams are rare and super cool; yours is done to a T. 8) 8)

(Such a shame about Mombat.)
