    Messiah, is the welding around the ISCG tabs a bit “agricultural” on your Troof? Mine has the look of something that I’m sure functions well but it looks a bit naff.

    Yes, not a thing of great beauty and it looks a funny way to do it with one of the bolt holes set into the down tube, but it is a huge tube and it seems to works fine. I did have to remove the bottom bracket spacer from the drive side and pop it onto the other side to get it all to line up with the E13 LG1+. It’s not something I think about now the bike is built and being ridden… enjoy!

    Cool, I did think that it’s probably fine and once the guide’s on there I won’t give it any more thought.

    Is toe overlap an issue on that, Rob, or do you just get used to pedalling to suit?

    Bike/tree interface error :mrgreen:

    If you’re pedalling & turning the handlebars at the same time you’re doing it wrong. As you can tell from the above, doing it wrong is my field of expertise…

    Another recommendation for the BTR here. I saw/rode one with Burf piloting it at UKBP a few months back. Amazing frame! It looks amazing with the retro boxxers on it. He was absolutely flying on it..like he was on a susser.

    If i had £600 for a H/T id have one.
