I already had the original winged style orange head tube badge, sets from orange come with the cheap looking outline new style badge.

Dnfive will do whatever colour you want, did think about black decals on orange frame would look good. But had a load of black hope bits so went black & white.

You can get those ones from orange in gold or white for £20 which includes postage and a metal head tube badge.

Actually, the white one comes with black decals (2012).
So they should have some.

I'll give them a ring then, see if i can blag another head tube badge for the MsIsle too after it decided to 'go missing'.

Cheers fella.

Just a quick update, after stripping the patriot of a few bits for the MsIsle a few month ago, after snapping the XT cranks.

I rebuilt it yesterday fitting a new saint crankset and a blackspire chain device, so its back as one peice and usable again:

The stem looks really long on the above pics, so much so that it actually looks wrong! I may have to look at something else.

Yeah I know, in fact chain reaction still sold them up until last year! I nearly bought one new, but this one came up on eBay and its mint. Just a little too long.

I've got the exact same bar/stem combo on the MsIsle too! So I don't have to get used to the DH bike again at the weekend after commuting all week on the MsIsle!
