BIGMAN I AM REALLY QUITE IMPRESSED.

CONSIDERING THE AWEFULL STATE IT STARTED IN, AND YOUR VERY TITE BUDGET OF £300, IM STILL IM SHOCK OF HOW YOU MANAGED IT.

I THINK WHAT YOU HAVE MANAGED TO ACHIEVE WITH SPRAY CANS IS EXCELLENT.

ALSO IMPRESSED AT HOW YOU MANAGED TO TAKE A LOAD OF ROPEY OLD SCRATCHED XTR, AND REFINISH IT ALL.

THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF COMMENTS AROUND REF WHITE KONAS AT THE MOMENT, BUT ITS QUITE NICE TO SEE YOUR OWN PERSONNEL TAKE ON IT, WITH YOUR OWN STICKER DESIGN.

I LIKE THE WAY YOU USE THE ARROWS, AND THE POINTS ON THE DECALS TO TRY AND COMPLIMENT THE PURPLE PAINTWORK ON THE REAR OF THE FRAME.

I THINK YOU SHOULD BE COMMENDED FOR A JOB WELL DONE, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THIS IS YOUR FIRST BUILD EVER,.

I WOULD AGREE WITH MMP THOUGH, NOW IT NEEDS SOME DIRT ON IT. :D
