    I only need road brakes with 451 wheels, so I wasn't considering V-brakes but I suppose that can be added. Or perhaps disc?

    I added 25mm to the top tube.

    Titanium Swift frame, anyone interested?

    My aluminium Swift is now 7 years old, still going as perfect as ever, but I don't expect it to last forever. More and more I fear the spectre of frame cracks. I haven't found any, but I haven't made...

    I would get Primo Comet 20 x 1.5". Fine herringbone pattern. Very good robustness. Let us know if you find a good source, I should get some too. Ebay ones are a bit dear due to postage.
