    Chad, your attention to detail and 'button-ed up' clean style always shines through in your builds!
    You have combined the very latest in bike technology with an old school vibe. Well done! :thumbsup:

    Make sure to attach a link to your build thread near the top of your post so folks know what kind of work you put in on this. Rat on!

    You took a modern frame most people wouldn't think twice about and turned it into a top ten contender, bravo.:41:

    Thank you all so much!!

    I like to try to build something that makes me want to ride it. This one really does. It's a fun one to ride too.

    Wow...thank you guys so much.

    I made a few changes with this. Removed the carbon fiber tank panel, re-routed the front cable and added a license plate I had in the late seventies and early eighties.

    Changed the pics to show the current state. I'll try to get some better shots today.

    Really got to test the drivetrain when I rode this to the park. Whenever I take a bike down to ride on the bike path the trip back is uphill for about the last mile to my house. I can get it over with quickly if I ride up this steep hill out of a ravine. This peddled up it real easy. Extra weight on the nose makes it possible to stay in the seat and climb.
