lovely, love talk bikes and the track plus commuter look is right up my street (check my bbbb).
chain's kinda loose no?

tnts says:

Yes the chain is maybe a bit slack, but doesn't jump off. I'm going to take this to parts tomorrow and deep clean everything and build to a bit different setup for few weeks and then return it to the rainy day settings.

And yes.. nice big block indeed, but so much spacers, such short stem and low saddle. It's opposite to my preferences.

Yep the low saddle, that's why I'm about to downsize to a 56. Spacers just... feels right, I'm too old to be bent over all day, but agreed, it does look a bit too much.

The main thing is the bike feels good when riding. I like to have a drop from saddle to bars to get the right position.
