    One thing though. Be careful of detail shots when the detail isn’t quite perfect 😉
    Little bit of cheeky breakout on those dropout bolt drillings. Classic thing when you have really short grain near the edge on a laminate like that.

    Sorry. Can’t help noticing stuff like this. I think my eyes are instantly drawn to defects that perhaps the person in the street might not pick up on.
    Cool looking bike though 😊👌

    It’s great to see people doing bikes with wood. Would like to build something myself but it’s not really something that fires me up enough I suppose.

    Did cross my mind too, unless there’s some bracing we can’t see from that angle.
