I like.

How is the fork? Looks like it could be "noodley"?

The 15mm axle actually does a great job keeping it all in check regarding steering input, which leaves the legs free to do their thing from a comfort point of view, and they do that fantastically well! 8)

Have seen some very nice effects created with polished logos on ti bike frames, so thought I'd have a wee go at polishing the centre of the logos at the weekend as the weather was shocking.

So out came the dremel complete with a tiny polishing mop and the Autoglym polish... and heres's the result!

The effect is very subtle, although I'm sure if the frame was bead-blasted instead of brushed, it would be much more effective. I had spare decals to hand in case the vinyl disintegrated with the speed of the mop, but incredibly, they stayed intact! 8)

The natural suspension from Ti forks is amazing. Love my Moratis.
