    I’m going to be building myself a single speed.

    Picked up a black La Quelda frame from Planet X yesterday along with some other components. My good lady bought it for me as my christmas present but I wanted to wait until after christmas knowing there would be a sale on.

    May be a little while before I actually start the build as I still need some parts but very excited to be getting started.

    I started mine last year.... I really need to get it finished! (Headset issues).

    Didn’t know it was the Holdsworth frame until I googled it. Very nice. Worth a pic I think.

    Goodness, I had mine on the road inside three days. Admittedly it then had me on the road the day after.

    My own stupid fault. I wanted to get it built to ride the next day. I swapped nearly everything from another frame onto it but needed a different stem because it is 1 1/8 and the other was 1". The stem I had had a different clamp diameter, which meant different bars. I neglected to notice that this meant the brake cables were too short, and came unstuck negotiating some traffic.

    I was looking at buying one but they say no orange frames for at least 3 months. If the green one was brighter I might go for that, but I emailed them and they confirmed that the green is dark as on the shop page (rather than the emerald green as on the owner's bikes page).

    I need an orange size M.
