A bike from scratch...

The bike fitting process:
- measure up the existing steed
- transfer measurements to the 'fit bike'
- pull on the lycra and get sweaty
- make any tweaks to improve position
(in my case longer cranks and bringing the bars up about 5mm)
- transfer the measurements to the computer and play with shapes and angles.

Bike building, involving titanium tubes being tortured into shape
with some seriously chunky machines.

Bike finishing, involving lots of intricate paint work (no decals here).
The frames and forks get the full treatment, but they also strip back
head stems and seat posts to make sure they look the part too.
