Well I set myself a challenge of building a "propper" WW bike.

The spec was to run on the flat lincolnshire forest hardpack and gravel roads, with as low cost as possible

As such I decided:

- I could run single speed up front.
- I could run low volume tires
- I did not really need front sus (Cant help harping back to my old school days)

So the weigh in will be tonight. anyone interested?

Cost £1076 to build so not huge figures but not as low as the wife thinks

I'm a big fan of budget builds and this looks like a fun ride. Enjoy!

Nice, but the cables seems a bit long in the front. Especially the one for the front fork! Very flashy otherwise.

dem red bolts for the stem clamp - please don't tell me they are aluminium alloy!!! :shock:

replace by steel if you do not like facial reconstruction surgery and expensive dental bills. :twisted: (Ti if you must but I personally don't)
