Rasta stuff will be changed by silver thomson, just wanted to see how over the top it could be. Bike is at Jeroen's place now. Hope he likes it :D

Nice frame! As already mentioned by others, think it would look better with less colourful components. Black or silver Thomson imo.

Just out of interest what the axle to crown measurement on the fork :?:

Will check tomorrow as the bike is no longer at my place, pretty sure it's 390mm though (Yo-Eddy M/L non suspension corrected geometry)

This is just the answer I was hoping for :D If I ever went down the custom frame route, I'd definitely go with non suspension corrected geometry!!

Classic lines on the frame, how does it ride?

:D

Rides like a dream, the Splatter is actually the twin brother of my (former) Polkadot http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... roovy+650b that was before the rebuild to Discs and 650B :wink:
