    Spooky I’m just finishing a build, still pondering whether to run it with a single or triple chain ring. Might start with the single and see what happens. 2013 frames due in at the end of october. I had real trouble sourcing a frame and forks but eventually ebay turned up a brand new one that had been part built but never ridden.

    Nice bike and film

    Is that a flask of tea on the fork leg?

    Nice vid mate, lovely bike. What’s the advantage over a CX bike though? ( not being a tool here by the way) I live my CX for everything from a blast to a spin. If it just because then great stuff all bikes are good!!

    Prob main advantage is strenght of wheels and luggage rack mounts at a price of weight and speed to a CX bike πŸ™‚

    It was a flask of coffee on the fork πŸ™‚

    I’m very tempted, but between my Gryphon and my Peregrine, my exploration / adventure bikes are pretty much sorted …

    Yours looks very much at home there.

    (As a kinda aside maybe, but what do you shoot with / on? I still use my miniDV camera as I can run external feeds or external cameras into it, (like a bullet cam, or old analogue 8mm etc to give me options), but I could really do with something smaller, that’s non-linear, and with better battery life).

    OCD; filmed with a Go Pro, bubble lense cover is scratched hense the funny light glows so i need to get a replacement!…

    Only let down of the 180 degree fish eye lense is distant views are er.. distant!

    New Go Pro 2 with 120 degree lense setting should be better πŸ™‚

    I just use a gorrila pod, chest cam mount, or mono pod to mount the camera

    Well mine is now set up as a triple with midge bars and bar end shifters, it all came together first time, a rare occurence for me. Just the brakes to sort and ready to roll πŸ™‚

    Cool, thanks.
    Scratched lens cover = arty shots, surely. πŸ˜‰

    The GoPro2 was looking pretty firm as the most likely candidate for my replacement camera [anyway], but it’s very useful to see how they are actually being used in the real world – I’m particularly impressed with the exposure / colour balance I must say, it’s caught some lovely light…

    Ah well, if the Gryphon was first then it must be first choice. Good. Glad that’s sorted in my mind.

    Just need to find the money now.

    The gryphon was my first choice but there weren’t any left so a fargo it was.
