    Add Simpleton to the "stick a fork in it" file...

    Build here:
    viewtopic.php?f=75&t=72350

    It's been a rider since the end of May and I've just been out having fun with it ever since. I almost forgot that the build-off was ending this weekend and that I never put it in the finished bikes thread. :oops:

    I could have done a lot more with it but everything just fell into place and worked well - so why mess with a good thing? :D
    The only parts bought specifically for this bike were the fork, chainring, some spokes, and chain (and maybe the spare gold crank but I didn't use that) Everything else was stuff I had laying around or had purchased previously for unknown "future projects".

    I had to run a few errands around town so I grabbed some pictures while I was out.

    Let's start with the mandatory Train-In-The-Background shots that everybody here loves... :roll:

    Kitty - tried to get the bike in the picture but the cat was having no part of that and left...

    Oury grips... the best aren't they?

    Extra gold cranks you say? :mrgreen:

    Sweet bike, looks like a smooth rider.
