I think the King and the QRs are the only Turquoise Bling I'll have on this build.. Any more and it'll look a bit much..

Cranks & Tyres just showed up 8)

Built up the front wheel with the Stan NoTubes Kit.. Managed to work a way of doing it Off Menu [i.e. not following instructions] that seemed to make the process easier..

Well.. The Argos Finish is simply stunning..

The Champagne colour is lighter than I was expecting, and better for it.. The "metallic" finish is deep and very granular giving it a pearlescent finish.. And the lacquer is deep 8)

I think the Frame/Fork/Stem Combo will have to run something like this..

Frame HS Fork Stem
Frame HS Fork Stem


..if ya get me :lol:

I'll stick it in the Stand tonite and take a few photos.. Hova is coming over tonite to check out the Spare Parts Bin so I'll get his opinion [or not!] too :lol:

Colour looks lovely.

Not that keen on coloured tyres but be interesting to see how it all hangs together at the end.
