This bike was a lot of fun to build up and is a ton of fun to ride! Fastest build I got done, delayed a bit due to the attempt to find a reasonably priced 102mm Italian BB. It feels super twitchy and quick to dive into a turn. Eats up the road chatter very well and is a super comfortable frame to ride :D Just need to make small adjustments here and there with saddle height.

Special thanks to Stuart and Ian Laing for giving me a shout-out here on Velospace and helping me find more information as well as confirming it as a frame made by your guys' father, Colin Laing. You guys are great!! I can never thank you two enough! It really makes this frame all that more special. I truly feel honored to be able to ride a frame built by your guys' father and hope I have built it up in suitable fashion.

UPDATE 28.04.2013: Got 4th place at the Island Sprint race here in Toronto on this bike! :D

Great build!

I have a deep purple Colian with a mono stay. I love to see other Laing bikes, no two are alike!

Some of the twitchy you feel

Some of the twitchy you feel is likely the stem. You can tune that in with another. Less goosey.

Toe Overlap

Actually, there is quite a bit of toe overlap, not sure if that helps with understanding that. It's quite a steep headtube angle.
