Those double track are going to serve you well, they are heavy as hell, but strength comes at a price eh?

Did you wrap your cables in duct tape? That just ruins it. Get some electrical tape, heat shrink, or the stuff that nerds use to wrap up all their cables in their computers.

You might want to wrap up the chainstay too.

Sick bike though. Still interested in reducing the Sherman?

Building a bike is not hard if you know what you're doing and you have all the right tools. It takes me right around an hour to build up my own bikes. When it's my own bikes, I take a lot of time. But if you don't really know what you're doing, it can take a long time and be very frustrating. You may end up spending more to have somebody else fix your mistakes.
