    I've lived in Norwich all my life.. Riding a white frame with crome forks and woodgrain deep-v's.

    after sitting in an office all last year I just landed the perfect job where I get to ride about town all day on my pride and joy, delivering baguettes and getting paid for it!

    @ hvadhir

    bikes a beaut mate. one of the nicest i've seen. what colour/effect are those deep vs?
    yea i would have filed down the frame before the spray. but otherwise perfect!

    @ dale
    conversions can me more comfortable than pistas cos of there relaxed geometry. Sometimes i wish i thaught of that before I'd bought my track frame (but then i tell myself that i'm too young to be buying bikes for comfort). but i agree that there are nicer road frames out there to convert.

    i would have liked to file down the frame but i bought it how it is, the deep v's are limited edition woodgrain apparantly!

    appreciating the love.

    i don't understand, you spend £35 on a paul lever but have a conversion?!?

    I don't see what's wrong with wanting the make the most out of a redundant frame.

    Plus, nearly all those parts can be moved on to a track frame if I find one that takes my fancy enough.

    that looks like a cinelli bb shell, what's the frame?

    yeah, the bb shell is cineli but i wish i new more about the frame. I'll put up some more detailed photos soon.

    It's got "LP" on each shoulder of the forks. and "L.P PIRON" stamped on the chainstay. the guy i bought it off seems to think it's columbus tubing.

    how much were the wheels in total with P&P included?

    Can't remember exactly but i do remember the extra £50 charge i had to pay once they got to the parcelforce depot.

    I got them here, loads of decent (i hope) wheelsets prety cheap.

    not too sure what the hubs are, but they are exactly the same as some i got from st john street cyles for £40, just in white.

    As for the wooden bars, maybe for some photos but i dont reall fancy wrapping my face around stem..

    Coming to the end of building my 1st fixed..

    Got most of the bits i need but still looking for a decent front brake and minimal lever.

    I'm also looking for a seatpost but not sure exactly what size i need, 28mm sound right?
