Yeah somethings wrong. Agree the wheels look out of place but I'm rarely a fan of them any way. I think the risers are doing it no favours.

End of the day though if you need the additional height its either gotta be them risers or an ugly high rise stem.

The black post would aid the aesthetic.

It is fab, but you need a black seatpost and spoked wheels to make it perfect.

That said, I would still be proud of it. What a bike.

Could also be my inabillity to hold a camera whilst shaking heavilly due a crippling hangover, which i'm currently feeding beer...

Rather have had the carbon tubbed Spinergy's but these came along first. Spent way too much to change the wheels now. Other money pit's, i mean projects are on the go.

No idea of weight, but she's very quick to acellerate.

F6 would of been pretty much transition era as far as mainstream riser use goes I would of thought. Either way by the sounds of it , its a necessity.

Love the wheels, but you definitely need that black seat post
