Still needs paint at some point but hopefully won't be long until I do that.

It's the cyclemeter app, I'm a big fan of it.

That looks really well mate - the forks look to be in really good nick. I think quite a few get a hard life so a knackered by the time they are moved on.

The paint on the frame looks good in the pics....although yuo can't always tell.

I miss the old Orange hardtails with the massive box section dowtube - my Sub Zero was one of the best bikes I had, and despite beig very stiff, was much more forgiving tha the Chameleon that replaced it.

Yea the paint is pretty good on most of
The frame. Just a couple of bits I'm not 100% happy with.... And the fact I want to remove the brake mounts from the seat stays. :D

What arent you happy with?
I think a thomson x4 stem would go nice on there, or a black hope fr stem.

Change the bash!

Unscrew the brake mounts and put blanking bolts on. Job done, no respray needed.

There's some marks on various bits of the frame which I would rather address sooner rather than later.

New bars and stem are in the pipeline at some point.

Coomber... Nice idea but think I'll go the whole hog and remove them.
