    Really nice those bikes, are you on Harris there?

    dan_bo How much does it cost to Oldham?

  3. Yes. Bottom one is at the Huisinis junction at Ardashaig. The Cross Check snap was at the turning point on this out and back. The fixed is back in Stornoway against the hospital lab wall.

    Lovely looking build, do you hsve any info on the mizuno forks? I have a bike with the same fork and have not been able to find out much info on them. They seem to be quite well liked by those who have a set.

    My new Mercian, wheels, crankset and grips 'borrowed' from my Surly, will be buying a handbuilt set of wheels (silver), and silver/ grey crankset after my holiday in the Netherlands.
