Broke my little finger going over handle bars riding in the Alps this year....denim is a far safer hobby -  Can Haraki make me some 21oz gloves for next years MTB Alps weekend ?

Know what it feels like.  I bust my finger careering down Kirk Fell in the Lake District a few years ago, that was before I realised I could use the bracken to slow me down.

richochet -- I'm seriously impressed that you made that bike, dude. You're very talented ! Check this article out :
http://www.velvetparkmedia.com/blogs/chicks-bikes-and-brooklyn-woman-owned-bike-shop-changing-neighborhood

I admire KT Higgins. As I've mentioned before, I'm a total numbskull when it comes to mechanical inclination. That's why I write code for a living. Logical/Analytical mind, YES. But there's a certain high intelligence associated with building things, fixing things with your bare hands -- and I lack that kind of IQ.

That is a sweet build!  I'm just about to do the same thing with a frame I found on ebay.  This time, being only my second, I'll be documenting/photo-ing my progress.  I'm gonna do up a utility bike using an early 80's Univega Vivia Touring frame.  ;D
