If it ain't broke don't fix it...just remove the chain guard. I love the design of old school chain rings

a solid solution to relieve the lower pack pain associated with having a saddle jacked up on a frame that is probably just a tad too small.

Another one from the archives back in 2012, that I never got around to posting.  

Those clincher bolts on the headstem better be tight as with no compression bolt that thing is a ticking time bomb let alone a source of impalement if they came a cropper. I like the almost all blue fit out even including the tires.

I've never fully understood the theory of not cutting the steering tube down once you have been fitted for your bike, unless the owner was expecting to undergo a growth spurt or two different people are using the bike? Not cutting down steerer tube rant over, I like the use of two different types of handle bar tapes which is something I haven't seen before and all the components work well together.
