    203mm Disc brake. I ran out of end crimps, so I soldered the cable end to stop it fraying and then soldered on a spoke nipple for something interesting.

    Yes, agreed Chad ^ ......Pedro (Class 3).....Outer space builds! And to say that paint is "gold" is a misnomer.....it is all colors of the rainbow, and a few we haven't identified yet! Nicely done Luke....:41:

    That is a beauty. Your imagination is in sync with your skills as a builder and your artistry/attention to detail.

    Thanks Guys!
    Not going to happen I am afraid! I learnt my lesson with the swingbike, I don't bounce like a kid any more when I hit the deck! :blackeye:

    Thanks Smoopy! It is interesting you mention not liking the lights, a couple of people have said the same thing... People seem to love them or hate them, but it seems most like them... Maybe one day I will build another version but without the lights. :thumbsup:

    New pics from today up the top too everyone, I decided the bike needed some more detailed shots for those that don't want to read through the 32 page build thread... ;)

    Luke.
