I think all the ano bits cheapens the look and detracts from the carbon frame and fork lowers.

That said its more about how it rides I guess.

Tone back the ano perhaps to one colour add a dropper post and your away :-)

thanks for the comments guys, I have a dropper post but it never really gets used so its back in its box, I never seem to need to drop it.

its a love or hate bike I suppose, its a lovely ride a little twitchy up front but that's what I like.

Nice ride, but like others I'd have stuck with just one ano colour, as it looks busy with the blue and red

I like the ano - brightens it up quite nicely....

Personal taste tho!

mixed opiononns about this - one colour ano would have been my choice.

another bike with crank brothers wheels ..... just wait til you snap a spoke

what is the elastic band for on the rh fork leg?
