Great build John. All the builds you do look just right and I expect ride beautifully.
Do you build your own wheels as well ?
Do you let the LBS do anything at all or is it all built from frame up?

Steve

Steve,
I buy my wheels hand built by SJSC or another business that also has a very good wheel builder. I do everything else from frame and forks onward including fitting headset . I do not take nor ever have let anyone else do any work on my bikes.
Thank you for your very kind comments.
Basically I learned the hard way whilst teaching myself that specific tools are required for building bikes!
Best regards,
John

Mr Leftpoole often shows some beautiful bikes. I'm sure I've seen some of his stable. Left alone(or with him in attendance on a sunny day)I could sit with him and a cuppa ust looking and appreciating his creations and tels of choices made.
There's people hereabouts with great wisdom.
I just luv looking at soe of the bikes hereabouts and seeing pics of where people go.
I miss being in my stronger years. Was no mile-eater or road man,but miles are longer theseadays
