I was greeted with a more than cheerful Joel in Pijin clutching his shiny new steed today. Was the sacrifice worth it? I've not asked him this directly but judging by the grin on his face, I'm sure the answer would be a most definite yes!
So just what did Mr Joel spend his hard earned pennies on? All parts are hung off a Fit S3 frame which has undergone some serious hacksaw surgery... mainly to remove all signs of brake mounts and brake stops. Lumberjacks have had some inches taken off and the rear hub axle has not been spared either.
Note the interesting choice of cranks. One Profile arm in black and the other in raw. Hmm... I wonder what happened there? I heard an interesting story involving a bunny hop...
