You're welcome. Nice to see old steel frames being used as they're intended and not all turned into fixies :)

u_w, now that's disco incarnated in a handle bar tape :lol:

Of course it is. I always suspected twisted down tubes and wooden fenders is what gets you going :wink:

he he. actually, the twisted down tube is something that makes me hesitate on the ProCross in favour of the Cooper CX instead, which has a more classical design. the wooden fenders fortunately aren't included when buying the frame set :)

it's not easy finding a light weight, race ready, CX frame with disc tabs, so sometimes you have to settle for something a bit more bearded that you'd wish :lol:

I like the Lynskey, it just feels faster than anything else I've ever ridden.
I was riding it fully rigid up until Friday as the only forks I had with a long enough steerer tube were rigid carbon ones.
I bought some Fox F29 100mm forks off ebay, fitted them on Saturday morning, went for a test ride, then raced it today on Salisbury Plain.

Its a few years old now, but I don't think I've posted a picture of it here before. It has had various bits replaced and upgraded, the forks are fairly new, plus a shiny red Hope front hub, headset, seatclamp etc... 8)
