    If it wasnt for the rake of the front fork i'd swear it was on backwards

    It does look very odd.

    Only given it a brief run so far as it still needs a little bit of fettling of the brakes and gears. Seems pretty comfortable and handles well on and off road.

    As I'd expected the gearing is a bit of the high side for me so I've got a plan to sort that out. The Magura Julies appear to be crap but I've a spare set of Deore's that will no doubt end up on it.

    It's like nothing I've ever seen.
    I dunno what to think.

    Still doesn't have mudguards – do you live in New Mexico?

    Nice hybrid..! 😉

    However, you seem to have fitted the saddle incorrectly. Tell me that isn't comfortable….

    The build is no-where near complete yet – it's getting a compact double once all the bits arrive, a front rack and possibly mudguards (although I might well leave them off until autumn). It's also getting a Brooks B17 and a different seatpost so there's no point sorting out the saddle angle as it's comfortable enough for my commute anyway.
