I've only changed a few parts to keep it as near to how Pip built it, but making it more comfortable for me if I get well enough to ride.

Wow -- that's lovely. What are your impressions of the ride? (One of the things I loved about Pip's threads was his notes on how his bikes climbed etc.)

As per my quote above from the thread, I'm not up to riding. I've only taken it on a very short function-check run, so can't give much feedback on the ride unfortunately, other than it's light and fast!... hopefully I'll be able to ride more at some point in the future 🤞

Cheers

Sorry mate, I missed your comment about not being up to riding -- too busy drooling over photos! Hope your recovery goes well and you can put this thing through its paces soon.

No worries, thanks :)

That would be nice, but long term declining issues, so I'm not holding my breath, but live in hope! 🤞

Cheers
