"On the course Dave mentioned he wanted to see some pictures of our bikes in far off places - is Bedfordshire far enough?!

I finished off the frame this week, and thought you guys might like to have a look. Fairly modern parts spec, but I was far too eager to get out and ride to search for some old shiny bits. The sense of achievement as I rode it down the lane for the first time was amazing.

Please thank Dave for his help, encouragement, guidance, biscuits, tea and for creating a monster. I can't wait to do another one!"                 JK

"I've built my bike up with bits and bobs from other bikes and a few new bits like the stem and bottom bracket, it rides brilliantly, it's great to have a frame that actually fits and goes in a straight line after being used to converting old bangers to fixed. Gets quite a few looks from couriers in the town, they can't quite work out what make it is!!"                NJ
