He-he . . . I LIKE IT! Yes and that's coming from a weldor. Smile

Just curious though, how much does it weigh?

To be honest, I haven't put it on a scale but the Renovo website sez:
"Frames weigh from 3.5 to 4.5 pounds, depending on size and the particular wood. Complete bikes weigh from 16.5 to 20 pounds depending on components and configuration."
I have no reason to doubt that assessment...

Have fun and just enjoy the ride
