It's not really that much.
If you look at the whole picture it's a different story. Not sure I can explain so I won't even try.

Bloody ell, what did Red Bull have to say about your 'art'?

Nice start to the build too.

I got the frame decals yesterday and collected the polished rear end. I'll take some pictures of it today. It's amazing.

I finally pulled the various frame parts out of their storage spots and assembled it earlier. I'll get a friend to fit the decals for me who is more used to them than me. I've heard rumours about new Mavic D321s so I haven't done anything about wheels yet.

Looking good. You need to lower the trunion on the shock barrel other wise the shock will scrub against the tyre towards the end if the travel. I've found if you wind it down leaving 2-3 threads visible under the trunion it will be perfect. You'll get the full 6 inch of travel and no fouling of the shock :D
