havent committed on paint yet. Probably matching, so copper with flame job. For the full bling effect. They have a blue bike with flame job with matching fork on the site and it looks very cool.

thanks for the info, other also seem to use a 34t on the front. Here is the solitaire with a lovely middleburn "Uno" crank installed. Very tidy. Also a thomson stem and EC90 flat bar. All that remains is the DT swiss wheels and she should be a fairly light build.

It's getting more use, and so are my legs. It doesn't attract attention locked up in the High Street...
