Not sure whether to clearcoat the frame, but it does need waxing. I might paint the front forks in a contrasting colour, instead of the mis-matched blue, possibly red to match rear wheel, or black. Ground clearance is fine with the fat tyres, 165mm cranks and quill type pedals. I might fit a second centre pull brake to the rear as my big feet clip the side pull item. The saddle stays for the time being, heavy but comfy. The pedals are demountable and will get strapless toeclips. I may attempt to commute by train occasionally on this machine.
