"my fixie" llewellyn and workstand arrived...

dazza packed the bike in a triple box
and after a delay at lax customs
i have 'my fixie'...
...the yellow and green are growing on me...
we had lime green white chocolate frogs
custom made for our passover celebration...
i thought they might be a nice way to introduce the thread
--stop over for one and give a hand with the build--

I like. Dazza has some frame-building skills for sure. Solid cat too.

Nice score! I spent a bit of time drooling over that one at NAHBS '08; Dazza's work is superb. One small critique; that post & saddle look out of place on such an otherwise fine build.

Sweet!

The Delta brakes add just the perfect touch.

I actually bought the post for my ottrott
And was thinking that after 50k it was time to find
A new saddle for woody...I have a black swallow that
I will put on the llewellyn instead...both my wife and daughter
Said yesterday..."Yeah, that's nice but where's the
Black brooks??" As for size, I just keep hoping
The mantra of the forum changes from
'Hey, your stem is too short to
Woah, your post is too long'...
--i'll try to keep it under 100 words--

I really like the yellow and green on your Llewellyn! And the matching stem is fantastic! BTW, is the frog a new type of water reservoir? Do you soak it an then squeeze it for the needed liquids when you are out riding?

Great color combo and really glad you're gonna change the saddle. One more suggestion, the routing for the front Delta is pretty wicked, ya might wanna re-rout that for a smoother transition. Those brakes, while beautiful, are iffy at best when it come to stopping, with that routing I can only imagine how they perform.

The frog is great touch!

All I can say is your a very confident man to chop your steerer tube down right away. Bravo, maybe a very flexible guy. How do you like that Berthoud saddle, and nice build too

IIRC the steerer was already cut when this frame was on display at NAHBS '08. OP can always swap to a bar w/ a flatter ramp if the drop ends up being too much.
