    Love champions. The Doug Schwerma frames are my favorite.

    Is this a new frame built from leftover tube stock?

    Cool

    Looks great, love it! Inspires me to want to get mine together. Just noticed the quick release hub up front. I have a brooks b-17 for the saddle, Araya 7x rims.

    Makes perfect sense and it's ridable. I still need to build my wheels and get some cranks, tires and bars. Coming along slowly but surely.
