    Wow - very nice work! I'm getting that you're not a fan of gears...

    How is the Whippet? Always fancied one.

    What's the point to have 3 nearly the same aimed bikes?

    Well, I like riding and building single speeds! They all ride differnt and the 2 carbon bikes get squishy front ends half the time.

    Yes three current a/c and there is, or was a 425 a/c.

    I like the non suspention corrected front end on the Ragley TD:1. I must have been in the minority because Ragley no longer offers the frame.
