Wow, tall and amazing. Your saddle height is around 830mm, right? Mine is 790mm - shrimpy compared to you!

Yes, that bike needs big fat tires to look 'right'! Fun project.

Well in celebration of the Hunter I already have, I guess I should post a pic of the current parts bin build. It’s absolutely too small for me with a flat bar, but that hasn’t stopped me from riding this actually quite a bit. That post is technically fine that far out of the frame according to the minimum insertion marks but… yeah. Lol.

I’ve got a sram hydro kit to try it with drop bars. Just gotta get around to it.

Super fun bike to ride. Eventually I will find a hunter that fits just right and then move this on.

The other thought I’ve had is getting a Falconer frame in my size, or a Sklar PBJ and putting the fork on that. Would be sick. The fork is an absolute work of art. Sooo friggin cool.

That gusset (and everything else Rick does) is so sharp. Looks structurally stable and streamlined in all the right ways.

these are truly sexy bikes. I wish this one was bigger (for you, but more for me!)
