I like it.

A friend of mine used to be sponsored by RAM Bike - they always seem to produce good looking kit :)

Cheers! Yeah, they do good looking stuff, and with pretty good value. Probably i will upgrade the frame in the future but for now it's ok.

Stil to come, Kmc X9 chain, X5 rear mech shifter, Conti RaceKing 2.0 and got to true the wheels and bleed the beakes.

Update: The right x5 shifter and Kmc X9 chain have arrived, i also managed to true the wheels.

Still to come: Tires, tubes, bleed kit, pads, and a few bits and bobs. Getting there slow but getting there
