Going to call frame N°1 finished, put a new chain/rear mech (old XT was knackered)/longer rear axle/new pads on it over the weekend. All fully working and functional now.
Not much else in the way of framebuilding progress as I'm in the process of moving back home to Shropshire from York and into a new job. Next frame will either be a rim brake/lugged road or a cargo bike (still undecided between full size and mini cargo-truck). New house has a shed and lots more outdoor space though which is a nice bonus. Hopefully get started in September on N°2.
Rest of the Trans-Cambrian went well. Off to ride the Adriatic Crest Trail in Croatia in the first week of October, currently trying to decide between this bike and the Solaris.
