Yes, fantastic photo.
When it first appeared I thought the background was a waterfall dropping into a swirling pool. Amazing.
fausto.

Seriously nice bike, Captain Slow. :D A nicely built-up LHT always tugs at my wallet-strings :oops:

I'm intrigued by your front light arrangement - is the clamp clamped directly onto the fork? Is it a non standard fork?

Thanks - it's all a bit embarrassingly new and shiny though!

The LHT has an upper fork thread to which I screwed in a light mount that I picked up in a Tokyo bike shop recently*. I'm wasn't overly happy with the arrangement though as I found that the light can foul the downtube on "Full Lock", and could be frame/fork mangling in a fall. It now resides in my "spares box" :roll:

*not dissimilar to these: http://www.tsmcenery.ca/emw/cycling.html

Very, very nice captain, the proportions look right, most LHT I see seem to have a lot of seatpost showing. Silver and black is just right, even though there's less choice in silver components.
I'd have made some different choices, more steerer and less stem angle, and V brakes... But it doesn't stop me thinking it looks great.

Thought I'd update my fleet, they're all different from the last time I posted. In fact it's just changed again, the mukluk has not long sold and there's a Kona on towing duties.

The tyres are something shocking.

Very, very comfortable though.
Have we got time for another cuppa?
