    Great stuff as usual, and I'm also excited to follow the linseed oil experiment. Would be interesting see a linseed treated steel bit thrown in the yard along with a traditionally 2k painted one to see how they hold up in comparison over time.

    Thanks, appreciate that. It's definitely the perseverance bit I'm most proud of with that project. It did cost a lot mentally. I've got enormous respect for people that churn out these restoration projects and builds. Very easy to get overwhelmed and discouraged by setbacks and the amount of work required.

    The hardtail is getting some custom bags, and man do they look awesome. Made by the forums very own @Tijmen of course. Can't wait to get them.

    Haven't got any experience with those. They look like nice tyres too.

    Well spotted :) Contrary to popular belief, there are quite a few budget options on this build. I like to save where I can and splash where it matters.

    My only issue with the Uno is that there is no option for an out-front computer mount.

    Cheers! I'm very happy with it. And kudos to @Tijmen for the Wit Slingers bags.

    @Hulsroy - I put 2500k on them and I like them. Rolls well enough and that little side thread gives a bit of confidence on gravel bends.

    It was pretty much put in the corner and robbed of its saddle after I built my Stribe Juno a year ago, so haven't ridden it since.

    My plan for the Crux is to set it up with the old tubular race wheels and take it for a spin on the odd days when I want a zippy bike for shorter rides. I've even bought a new saddle for it. I'll probably keep it forever so I can point at it when I'm 80 and lie about my race results.

    3-400c according to this guy. I've been planning to use this technique for bolts and misc stuff for car projects, but haven't gotten around to try it yet.
