Adam did an extremely detailed write up, illustrated with some pictures I took of his custom London bike.
worth checking out if you get a chance.

Very Very nice Adam I too am very anal about how my set up has to feel,I would love to make a custom frame as you did,have you tryed the kgb space II fork? I recently purchased a set and about sh*t myself with how badass they are and how good the brake works,since your a good mechanic you would have no problem dialing them in, you should give them a try,if you didnt like em i would buy them from you,i think you would dig em bro!!! your bike looks amazing congrats

Amazing bike and setup!  Looks like a true work of art.  It's refreshing to see a true flatland setup instead of just another trendy imitation "street" frame like all of the other frames that are coming out right now.  Props to you and London Bikes for making such a cool ride!

I read this earlier, couldn't get over how anal the guy is with his setup, what with all the filing, but that's what I used to be like with weight. I love the finish on the frame but not keen on the shape of it at all, still, sweet setup!

I have to weigh it yet, but I'll get back to you.

That frame looks so ,ADAM like,He had that built,And any f*cktard who has a problem with it just go the fulk away,serious,I seen this dude ride he's dope ,he knows his sh*t and as abstract from the diamond design,If u reallky have an issue with this frame go fucc yourself ,and take ur negative mindset down the road,cause any true rider4life wiodent even care bout anothers ride ,but aprreciate the original concept and design,rgaurdkless of matching there riding style specs....

Sweet, I like how you detailed all the little things you did to dial in the bike. It would be cool if more people did that even with off the shelf parts that they did something to to make it work better for them.  :beer:

Great write-up. I love to hear the reasoning behind every detail.
 
The front end looks a lot like that Suelo Tubo, but having the two tubes separate make it way more asthetically acceptable and probably a lot stronger too.

Its abit funky looking for my tastes, mind you im one of those people who prefers diamond frames & 2 piece bars. Pretty much all ive ever ridden, cant get used to the look of bent tubes.
