thanks alot :)

do you mean generally or colour?

while the purple was nice - quite unique, it was poor
a couple of people have said it looks better in purple but hey ho
looks somewhat plainer but thats ok

will get decals for it at some point (a few years? :lol: )

i have looked on ebay at iron cross ones to tie in with the wheels. currently thinking of an 11inch red one, semi wrapped around the toptube/headtube/downtube (junctions etc.)
and then some varied sized black ones randomly placed

Just spotted this. The silver looks great, more elegant somehow. Looks like a fast bike! Like it alot.

I like it! How do you find the single speed? Must be a mare of getting up hill! (Obviously not the purpose but still....)

Well it was 36/16 and i could do forder valley on it - no breaks. But just not feeling it in the dull dark days so its 36/18 at the moment but i keep pedalling out :lol: I guess yes it is a mare but i believe half the battle is in your head. My DH bike doesnt get anywhere up that hill - no chance!
