    Without going into a full chronological breakdown of the above situation, the way in which it has been presented is incredibly misleading at best. The build was put on hold by the customer, not us and we are still waiting for information needed to build the bike. The specifications have changed numerous times, and we have accomodated every time. We have all of the parts ready to build, and a completion date of end of August was given, which we will still now be able to meet if we are given information we need.

    As this thread shows we have had issues in the past, but I think it is fair to say that I have always gone out of my way to sort them out and to try and get the customer to a place they are happy with. In this situation we have done everything we can to accomodate changing circumstances, and there is really nothing we could have done. The parts have been ordered, drawings have been done and we are ready to build the frame. Until this week collecting at the end of August was totally fine, so I really don't know what happened but there isn't anything for us to recitify so here we are.

    In theory 28, but you can change clearance by how high or low you mount it relative to wheel

    Correct! Do it, theyre easy to build with and you don't need any tooling beyond what you would normally use, unlike S & S.

    2 x Ritchey breakaway complete (£200), 2 x ritchey breakaway seat post assembly (£70) Incepi flat mount fixture (£75) Diamond Tungsten sharpener (£100) Deda carbon wishbone rear end and frame tube (£100)

    Bought years ago but no longer build with them. Lightest way to build a travel bike, and easy to build with.
    Two sets are complete, and come with cable splitters as well. Two sets are just the seat tube assemblies, we used these when we made oversized down tube joints ourselves. You would need a lathe etc to do that, but again isn't a particularly hard task if you're familiar with turning. I used the cast seat tube bits as trying to make the seat tube assembly from thin wall tube was an excercise in misery, and for the weight saving wasn't worth it in the long run.

    Not available to buy unless you're an authorised builder (whatever thats worth) so if you ever wanted to get some nows your chance. Selling for £200 for the completes and £70 for seat stay assemblies.

    Incepi flat mount fixture - Bought it to hold over until Anvil made an adaptor for the system we use from them, has sat in drawer for 4 years. Works great. It was £150 when I bought it I think, selling £80.

    Tungsten sharpener - Bought this but due to us using different tungstens for different materials, changing the blades was too tedious so I just use different belts on the belt sander, so it is basically new. Bought for £150, selling for £90.

    Last for now is carbon deda wishbone rear end. Dont use these anymore, well made and easy to use. Paid £150, selling for £75.

    Can post at cost, or collect in Mitcham, whatever works.
