Pink to make the boys wink.


Just returned from Chipps birthday bash in Hebden Bridge. A top time had....fine folk, beer and chat.

Also picked up the pink frame from Tim at Sideways. It's as lovely as i'd hoped and i've done a wee bit of pressing, cutting, loctiting and tweaking already. Rims will be bonty duster on DT 240, the old man mountain racks are ready, there is a new saddle coming, a SSM zoncolan and the cranks will either be a modded M960 xtr, or something else....the gear will range depending on load, and there is a frame bag if needed. Brakes are bb7 with beloved paul levers and i'll likely bend up some steel conduit for em...no rush to build it...i think you can see from the pic the kicked out fork and relaxed angles. I'm very much looking forward to testing it out.

On the horizon is a Fort William to Glasgow 'time trial' off road which will be the first big ride of the year for me i think....

That look's great. Can't wait to see it build up and it'd be great to add it to the Owners' Club site when you're ready. Isn't this your third IF?
