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?


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,
