hello? hello, is this thing on??

Just a quick hello.
have been riding my old saracen for almost 12 years now.
but as of today it's in its final resting place (sort of) a carboard box for spares. My girlfriend's going to have the highest spec'd shopper this side of............errrrrr............ the road.

Anyway, am now just waiting for my new frame to arrive, so i can add all my new and shiney components to it. should be here on friday. s-works hard tail..... nice!!

pics

well, the frame arrived today so now i can start building.

anyway, the frame's got a couple of marks on the top tube..... 50 compensation offered!! nice!

however, the head race is too slack on the steerer tube and pace are being A holes about it!

that'll be a refund for my pace forks and my 50 being spent on some others

no digi camera so pics may take a while. i might even get to take some pics of my gf when i do though!

ok, so I've finally got some pics of my unfinished bike (grrr.... that it's not finished yet, but it's a bit of a long story).
What do you think?

At first, I thought, "Is it a fixie?", then I noticed no drivetrain at all, nor any brakes. So the questions are:

What size wheels are those (26", 650C, 700C)?

Can I have it?
