Not the quickest bike on the road but it is confident, comfortable, and will hopefully reveal some soul in time and miles.

Very clean and classy looking build. Based on this and another 54cm I found online, I will be ordering my frame very soon. What rake did you go with on the fork and why? It looks like the 54cm can go with either 45mm or 43mm rake.


Thank you. It was a bit of a head ache to gather the parts but also fun, and I like what came out.
I went with the 43mm rake which I believe is "standard" for the Smoothie? I was coming off a snappier handling bike and wanted to maintain that feel as much as I could.

Have fun!

Nice mix of old and new styles

It's only as fast as you peddle it.

Thanks, I was a bit

Thanks, I was a bit surprised at the limited amount of silver/alloy modern components. It really narrowed my options, but I feel I came out with some quality gear.

very nice. very sensible.
