    That’s absolutely lovely, and so much more than a bike.

    Today has been the best day I have had for what seems like a long time.  You guys added to it.  i was actually laughing walking from the train station to Shand reading the comments.  I love that the wee badge has gone down so well as well.  I really was not sure.

    Ta for that.

    Only one complaint about the silver rims and no other criticism?  Standards are slipping around here  🙂

    valves and logos, how many spacers, when are you going to tidy up that coax cable?

    you already pre-defended yourself on the cables, stem, saddle

    That is a very very very nice bike. Everything a custom bike should be and that colour is incredible. Enjoy the ride …

    Picture taken inside not in the garden. Otherwise we would have ripped into patio, grass, weeds and fencing.

    The frame badge is a lovely touch. I’m really pleased it’s come out the way you wanted TJ, you must be chuffed.

    Is now the time to mention the hideous silver rims?

    No – but having put mudguard on it i want to cry – the mudhugger rear looks hideous 🙁

    silver rims are beautiful

    When you get a bit of time can you post some photos of the frame and the welds so we can salivate some more?

    Premier Icon munrobiker

    It’s very you!

    Have you considered getting it covered with an invisiframe kit to keep it looking lovely for a long time? Especially if you plan to use bikepacking bags? The guys at Pedals do it to an exceptional standard. You’d never know it was there.

    I find it hard to believe you rode it from Shand’s workshop to yours on the canal and it’s still that clean.

    I washed it in the bath when I got home before I took pictures

    NO bikepacking bags for at least the first year to keep it shiny.  My touring will be done with a trailer for this very reason

    I was tempted to get the trailer colour matched

    For elshalimo

    My frame before painting and before any cleaning up of the welds.  I don’t know how much they clean them up.  I’ll take some closeups of the frame later ontoday

    The frame is not finished at this point

    One of the details I really like is all the threaded bosses are actually welded in- not rivnuts

    That’s lovely, very old school vibe to it, I’d say the forks almost ruin it! (there you go, someone had to be controversial). Not sure what else you could do though other than going full Dangerholm and stripping and polishing them or spending more on a polished Intend Hero. But it’s a lovely bike for sure, the seat tube is brillant.

    NO bikepacking bags for at least the first year to keep it shiny

    Not even a wee Carradice saddle pack? Surely no self respecting gentleman tourer would be without one?

    OS 1:250000 they dont do it as a flat or that edition any more

    A map maker would do it, we have one local but as mentioned it wouldn’t be cheap. Have fancied it myself, good to see how big it would end up.

    I tried to fit my little ortleib saddle bag last night – incompatible with the saddle I put on it – bah!  But a Carradice longflap camper might look cool 🙂

    I agree about the forks – It has actually come with a colour matched rigid fork.  I tried to persuade them to colour match the lowers on the sus fork but they wouldn’t – too difficult / time consuming / expensive to do and almost impossible to get the right standard of finish apparently
