thanks man! :D
this thing is stupidly light, couldn't believe it when i went to go pick it up!
singlespeed is taking some time to get used to, but will give it a while, seems silly low geared at first, but starting to get the hang of it!
paint job is awesome, it goes from almost vivid emerald green to gold with a greenish tinge depending on the light and angle, it is a properly pretty bike!
a little surprised at the lack of 'TRANNY' jokes so far too!!

got a bundle of bits with it too, almost enough to go 9 speed if i decide to!
it's all SRAM stuff though, never used it, always been Shimano, is their stuff any good?
got a pair of X9 shifters that bolt on to Formula brakes, an XO rear mech that actually looks really nice, all cnc machined and carbon, a SRAM cassette and the two missing noir chainrings, only need a front mech and a chain!
2x10 XTR does sound good though!
as for the ride, it's fast, no wasted pedal energy, the thing just flies!
and the colour.... well i love carbon fibre in its natural finish, and nice paint, which is why i'd been saving to finally finish the RC300, but when i saw this, i knew i had to try and get it, and the even though it looks amazing in pictures, they do not do it justice, green painted carbon rocks!!

I've always used shimano but have had an SRAM x9/xo setup recently and was massively impressed. Not sure whether I'm too stuck in my ways though!
