:shock: :shock: :shock: That is stunning. Love that detail on the lugged headtube. For me that is modern bike porn. Personally I love the colours. Have a soft spot for red anno.

How does it ride?

How ever much it cost its money well spent! A stunner. I'd not heard of Black Cat bikes before and have just spent a good while trawling through the website/blog, loads of lovely bikes!

Nice frame, I guess when you're riding it you won't have to look at the colour of it too much! Sorry for being a little blunt but the paint ruins it for me.

I think the paint is cafe racer style.

Swanky bike! Like the seatpost.


Your odi caps are the wrong way around.

Hey Guys,
Thanks for all the great comments.
Finally got to take it out for a real ride yesterday.
23 miles of beautiful PNW single track.
The bike rides like a dream.
1st time riding tubeless and I had to ask myself "what took you so long"?:)

BTW, this is what it looked like before the mud.
I did change the seat to a White Gobi and some White grips.
What do you all think?

Good to see you got it dirty :wink:
Had the same thoughts when I switched to Tubeless........that was two weeks ago (Racing Ralphs 2.4 on ZTR Flow)
Like the looks of the bike, maybe not my choice, but great to see different styles on the trails......not boring for sure :D
