Great job!
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Which tubs are you using on the LW wheelset?
veloflex criteriums
What did you use for the clear coat?
after i rubbed the paint back to nude carbon, after some deliberation about D.I.Y in the end i sent the frame away to argos cycles in UK for clearcoat and decals.
C`mon, be a man, make that side shot
will this do for now? :noidea:
actually i just noticed the saddle is tilted up a fraction!

I'm unloading all my bike stuff and keeping ONE bike, but this makes me want to take a old crappy bike and make it special.. Good job!

It looks stunning with low profile rims, but Lightweights are a bit poshy for Athena groupset none the less.
But I totally like love what you did with old and not so good looking frameset.

Who knew?

Underneath the punter kit, a legit bike.

Wow.
Buy it. & Ride it.
Only if it has a high margin of utility.
