Marshall Ferguson: This is definitely the best looking hobbit top tank conversion I've seen.


SlowBikeFast: Having ridden this bike I would say it's almost too smooth. Have you tried making it crappy?


WillD: glad to see this turn out


WillD: yea it looks like a decent start. dunno if the shocks need to be shorter or the forks longer or if it's just me
