    The completed bike as the last pic is 14lb. I didn't weigh the frame alone sorry.

    Looks like a bike to work day tomorrow, but may have a shower at some point so it was time to fit the fenders.

    Bamboo of course

    Got a new bar with a short reach that is very flat and a shallow drop.
    31.8mm though so had to buy a matching stem

    Planet X is great kit.

    Another ride and some dirt and Tarmac, nothing fell off and the new bottle cage mounts stayed on

    The Planet X bar and stem put the levers in a better position, time for some miles.

    wheel re-build on the cards, but the bike is basically done.

    Well, obviously we're all even more awed than we were before. (Seriously - I am awed.)

    ..But aren't you worried about Pandas???

    not too much, I don't think there are many in South Leicestershire!

    I do use the canal tow paths a lot though, hope no dogs decide it's a fast moving stick to chase!
