Probably best to start from the beginning and read through it chronologically. Adam Hammond (the author) built some of the coolest bikes I've ever seen, anywhere.
Thanks for chiming in! Always happy to hear from you on this thread, as your Frek definitely inspired me to build this thing

I read a bit of the blog. I like his writing style, and can identify with a couple of his mistakes. It is nice that he documented a few mistakes.
My burning question is, how did he have so much free time?? Maybe things really were different 10-15 years ago in academia.
