First Build.
Got the bike as it can be seen in the older picture to my birthday from my colleagues (since they knew I was getting interested in the whole biking thing) and was riding it like that for a month. In November I messed up my knee pretty badly and finally found the time to work on the bike.
Not everything came out as I planned (wanted cut off Bullhorn Handlebars...) and it was a bit more expensive than I thought, but I'm really happy with the result.
I learned a lot about bikes with the build and I enjoy riding it these (snowy...) days until I have to get surgery next week.
This will be my ride for the city and in the next few recovery months I'll build up another (track)bike to train my knees on in the summer.

---Came to the conclusion that this was too big, actually a 58cm frame. Sold the wheelset. Frame sits in the apartment waiting for a new owner.---
