hehe, most house in sweden has so good safty that the only way to get in is to smash a windows or something.

one good thing to do is to give some spare keys to neighbours :D

Yeah-I remember that when visiting my friend in Stockholm. I always thought the Swedes were very nice people. I still don't understand why the safety is so good everywhere. I mean, every house is like a safe. But then everyone on the street is also friendly. So what is going on there?

So when you are in at the neighbours (as criminal/thief), you only need to find the keys to get also in the house of the neighbours.

Nice build Johan!

Some more picture.
I had so much trouble trying to get the wire inside the toptube. The factory forgot to put in the cable guide that is used to guide the wire inside the toptube. I was trying for two hours and the gave up, got inside the house and had some tea. The i got and idea and tried again. Fixt it in 2 minutes :-)

Hi Frenk.
I tried using the cable itself the first times, but it's too flexy and would miss the hole, tha cable didn't evencome close to the hole. The inside of the carbon tuptube seems i little rough so i couldnt' giude it close enough tho get hold of it.
After two hours of frustation i took a break and suddenly rememberd that i had a cheap cable set laying around that has a small plastic tube that is used to protect the bare cable.
I took that tube inserted in the hole in front of the toptube and success!
It came out through the hole in the back on the first try.
