I've been feeling a bit red......

The elusive Moby, re-ano'd...

Ringle cam-twists (holeys) re-ano'd..

And the FTW cockpit continuing the theme including custom red Paul thumbie mounts :) .....

Still waiting for the frame to be painted..... need to get the wheels built and source some other little bits and pieces to round it all off.......

Maybe a bit too much red? I would go with the thompson stem to break the sea of red up a bit.

Or, maybe, a nice silver handlebar?

It's quite deliberate actually to see if it all pulls together or looks like a dog's dinner, until it's built I can't personally pass any judgement.

It's one of their 'Air Alloy' bars.

You have been making me think however looking at the cockpit part the plain silver branding, brake levers, thumbies and bolts break it up quite well, it will also have silver bar end caps too.

I have not re-ano'd the Moby's clamps for that very reason in the hope that it creates a balance between the cockpit, cranks/rings/bolts and the seatpost/saddle, where the saddle will be black.

I love the red, the fact you've had most parts anodised yourself, much kudos Lee.
