Very nice winter project, or anytime for that fact! Is this your first build ? Remember to measure twice and cut once, when it comes to the fork steerer tube. I see a lot of people using a fine tooth Hacksaw blade on carbon but I prefer a carbon specific blade as it sands its way thru nice and easy. Saw guide is the only way to go too. I have seen people use old stems clamped on for a makeshift guide. Keep the pics coming! And welcome to the Tutor.

Very nice. Like the wheels and the rim brakes plus the color is nice as well.
Clean work space too. Looking forward to seeing more pics of your bikes.

Welcome - your bike is hot. I love the colour (Candy Apple Red). Thanks for the idea mate. I was thinking about getting a project powdercoated - now I know which colour to go for. I'm excired to see this bike so get working and please let us know how much it cost because I think in the shops these go for thousands.

hi, My first build was another SWORKS SL3 frame that was a replacement bike which was totaled after getting hit by a car. Luckily I walked away from that one with a broken leg and some stitches.

Thank you for the insight on the carbon tube. I've already purchased extra spacers that I will put under and over to make sure I have the final proper height. More pics soon.

cheers,
