The Type Bike alias the T-Bike

This was an idea I had 3 years ago and never had time or money to start. Finally after almost a month of work I see my project come to life. Building a bicycle from scratch is a lot of work but fun, I had a little bit of help from the guys at iBike.
I have to say this is the most confortable bike I have ever tried. A little bit on the heavy side but fits perfect and handles great, solid.
