That looks like a great bike - I was tempted by one of these frames when they were selling them on CRC.

How does it ride?

OOO i like it!

I like the thought thats gone into the decals.

Not sure if the wheels would be too much silver though?

Very good balance at the moment.
Hope ring look sreal snazzy.

Nice bike, do you have any issues with the chain dropping off the top of the front chain ring?

only done about 1.5 miles so far :lol: got a lovely little off road loop that takes me 10 minutes. perfect for testing out bikes as has a bit of everything. have run the same system on previous bikes and did have the chain pop off once or twice but that was user error rather than anything else.
