Well, the bike was completed almost a month ago. I’ve been so busy using it I haven’t taken final photos to finish off this little part of my site. Not strictly true, I’ve also been lazy but here they are anyway - with added rainy mud that comes with cycling in our summers.
Seat and (muddy) post:
That’s it. All done. I absolutely loved doing this, my knowledge of cycle maintenance and philosophy has gone through the roof. As a birthday present (the budget) it lasted several months and I actually think in retrospect I’ve built something not only original but of more value than you’d get in the shops.
Something I actually thought the opposite about when I’d first finished it. All good.
