Get to start design work on mine sometime in July for a November delivery. The wait is killing me.

I'm not trying to fan any flames here at all, I am genuinely curious what the supposed issue is the with the cable runs? Is it just that left and right shifter cables don't criss-cross? I've done both and prefer running the left and right cables down their respective sides to minimize rub, and crossing cables under the downtube seems redundant to me. But, I'm up for learning something if anyone wants to explain it to me!

By the way, English can ride a bike as well as he builds em. It's not uncommon to see him tearing up the local roads in TT beast mode

The only things that even slightly bothered me were that eeBrakes route nicer with left hand front (obv. personal preference) and the owner's intolerable response to anything but adulation. A business owner really ought to have thicker skin. /shrug

Have you put many miles on the bike yet? If so, how are you finding the saddle? Comfortable on long rides?

Intolerable really? Like having a broad crack at the guy's routing and when pressed clarifying its a matter of personal preference. I think it's time to put it back in your pants.

I haven't called someone a "13yo girl on FB" since before FB was invented. Just saying. Put what back in my pants, exactly?

I want to replace the saddles on my other bikes with Berks the Lupina saddles are really good. Have ridden up to 150kms in a single sorte and the saddle is fine.. it's. It's no couch but it's doesn't beat it you up at all either.

One of the things that drew me to Robs work.. I wanted a fast bike and Rob knows first hand what a fast bike should be :thumbup:

I ordered mine in August of 2013 and received it January 2016. I think that I started the specification process sometime around July 2015.

I love his bikes but that is far too long to be practical for me.

Was this during his recovery from that bad accident? My wait is around 20 months.

Yup. He still got it done before my original expected delivery date.
