I find the over powering reek of the petrochemicals keeps the wife well away - whilst that would invite them in to the man cave likes wasps around a honey pot ..... and that’s borderline dangerous as the wife starts counting frames.

Although T-Cut takes top honours for smell and keeping the wife at bay



Lavender. :facepalm: Far too civilised

Peachy do you think your "French tart", (I know I got called a lot of things at Mayhem, but really!) could clean this Extralite up? :shock:

There have been a few of these up for sale recently. I quite like the polished look, have you thought about anodizing the frame? save some weight if thats the route you are thinking.

And i always thought Amp's were lighter, certianly look it.

:shock: Really, never heard of them before

I love the look of an true AMP but then you have to have the obligatory AMP fork - But this is a license to use something else up front and that takes the appeal off the scale.
