Plycycle Mk2 - Mostly finished.

With shaping done, varnish followed and then as soon as it had cured the final build. The main components are from a donor bike, with alfine 8 speed hub gear, and shimano disc brakes. The forks I had found were quite straight and gave a very twitch ride so we used the forks from the donor bike as they had a good forward reach which mellowed the steering. The twitchy steering was also a result of me making the head tube angle too steep. It was more shallow but I had a brain fart one day and changed it for no good reason, or at least not that I can remember. You live and learn.

Only thing to do are to properly fix the rear brake cable currently held with cable ties.
