Cool bike and very detailed kit. Here's a set of photos of it (maybe even by the designer: http://www.flickr.com/photos/63275358@N05/5758249005/in/photostream/

yes. that's the one.... the good thing is the bike file  are white... so anyone can colour it what ever they want.... but the minus are the ' thing' that cover the top of the wheels ( i dont know what in english) not in the file.... maybe one should make them selfs.

my skill are  not there yet.... so its on the 'maybe' list build lol....

Yes the kit is missing the mud guards and parts for rear rack. But then again if you one gets everything else done those should be fairly easy to add.  ;-)

Looks like they used monofilament fishing line for the brake and gear cables.  Nice little model

This page gives some idea of the scale and good pictures of the construction: http://blog.naver.com/zaeco/memo/110108752955

It appears that the full version is reserved for sale only (colors and it's printed on paper, offering also mudguards and rear rack + 10 gears etc. The free version is a white and simpler model (only one gear for instance, no rear rack and so on).
