Successful short test run, (now the snow has melted off of the road)

Only adjustment Jimmy has asked for was his favourite saddle..... :roll:

So far Allen, quite as a mouse (tiny squeak) cant really hear them over Jim’s moaning about how big the bike is! Don’t worry, couple of months and he will have added a few more inches on himself! :facepalm:

Good to hear Chris (or not in this case) On my wife's Falcon with Mavic MA40 rims they were particular squeaky but also amazingly efficient.

And yes that's the same line I used on my daughter when I built her first full size bike "stop complaining child, you'll grow into it."
 

Peachy!
