But where'd be the fun in that? :roll:

I think your right.

I note that you have lined up the rim decals with the writing on the tyres on both front and rear.

Yeah, I do it too........

Hi Richard,
first reaction on seeing the Jamis fit shots was just how sweet it all looks put together...

My second reaction was that I can see a lot more wall between your elbow
and your 'speed hump' now!

Comparing that recent photo with your avatar must give you a great feeling, the weight loss is quite evident.

Well done on all counts. And thanks for a very entertaining build lesson.

cheers,
Marcus

Richard, I was going to suggest one tiny modification to this magic build of yours to help you squeeze a bit more performance out of her.......respray her in a blindingly bright red! :lol: But seeing your doing 46kph already, blue is the perfect colour.

Mate, I have to agree with the others and say that you can really notice the shrinking hump!!!!!!

Well done.

OK, that's it. No more excuses - I'll see you in January for the TdU Challenge stage. As Dr. Seuss would say: "One bike, two bike. Red bike, blue bike"!
It does look good and I find riding a bike that I put together very satisfying, so riding one where you even built the wheels should be even more so.

Thanks for spotting the weight loss :D

Paint her RED? :shock:

The lad and I watched The Italian Job, the original version, not the crappy hollywood remake, and the red of one of the Minis is supurb 8)

But I can't have another red bike, the Toscana is red ... I hope.

btw Mike, that wasn't an average speed of 46, that was the distance done, but thanks for believing me capable of it :oops:

You'll have to change your avatar to suit the new stead then aye.

In your last extreme photo you look a bit red??? Exerting a bit of energy to hold yourself are you? :oops:
