It is amazing how much work goes into a hybrid LC, you change one thing which affects another and another and so on, this bike is that x10, a truly staggering amount of thought and work at every stage. Amazing, keep going Sir!
Hi all Mark has asked me to add to this post. Mark's wife, Sue, was taken ill early last summer, and sadly diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. He has been her primary carer since her diagnosis, and aided by his children, he has cared for Susie at home, through all her treatment, and now, more than ever, in the latter stages of this horrible disease. He has kept his build going when he has been able to, and I'm sure we all would agree his ability to concentrate on such a technical project is beyond admirable. But things are at a stage now where he wont have time for the bike, and he wanted me to let you know that it will take a back seat for the foreseeable future. I know a lot, if not all of us tune in on a Sunday night for the latest updates, and this post is just to let you know why building is suspended. Mark has also asked that this thread stays purely about the bike, and has asked that no replies are added for now. I am in touch with Mark, and I will post on his behalf if he wishes.

Hi chaps, I planned to post at my usual Sunday slot, but Flickr wasn't playing ball. Firstly, at the risk of sounding nauseating, I want to thank everyone who has posted messages of support about Suzie- it's been a huge comfort.
I've been doing a few bits on the 700 when in in the right frame of mind (my brain is still a bit scrambled!)
Moving on with the radiator brackets, I decided to make 2 slots in each bracket (slots suggested by tell7437 ) Slightly tapered like the standard upper LC brackets.
And great to have you back mate Brackets look fantastic Mark - great attention to detail as always. Was gonna ring you over the weekend but ended up having 2 busy days - will give you a call tonight Looking forward to seeing more of the 4 !!
