Dave Yates is a legend and his course cannot be recommended too highly. I'm having to twist my own arms to prevent myself from signing up to do it again. Have a look at for details.

Wow, Awesome Job!

Yes, Dave Yates is a fantastic frame builder. You built yourself a wonderful frame. The set-up is sweet too.

Fork replaced

With a brand new (mounted but apparently unridden) Deda Black Magic, £50 from the jumble. The Kinesis will probably end up on my Fuji Track.

Good work. Funny stumbling into this given we chatted about it last night.

Well done!

Very nicely done! I'd love to take a frame building class one day too.


I did the Dunwich Dynamo on this bike over the weekend. (London Fields in Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk coast, overnight). 115 miles by the GPS and the bike performed flawlessly apart from a chain drop that was wholly my fault. A day and a half later and I'm mysteriously free of agony. LOVING.


Very nice! & It's all yours. Nice work


I'm _so_ enjoying riding it. Makes the Orbit feel a bit slow and rubbish, which it really isn't.
