Nice! Can you stand one negative comment/question? Why set the Brooks saddle with the nose end so high up! All I've ever gotten was an aching crotch!

You know, that is just were it ended up, no discomfort ;) I have raised the post since the photos, so I'll have to check the angle for you there.

I've always loved this bike. I might've even voted for it on the recent RRB build-off. Saw it on the strandie thread at bmxmuseum, too. Not complaining one bit about seeing it again over here.:thumb: Awesome bike!

That is about where mine end up. For some reason with the Brooks the nose up attitude works.
