Kish recieved very promptly....and the build begins.
Was a bit worried putting 26ers on a 650B frame....but apart from the large gap between front tyre and crown...it looks fine...in my opinion.
The colour is gorgeous....looks baby blue in photos but the blue has more grey in it....very understated and cool.
So far I have used a black King headset I had rather than sourcing a silver one...looks OK.
Anyway...this is what I managed to do today at work...just waiting for some more bits to arrive.
BTW This is a limited anniversary run celebrating 15 years of Kish....complete with the colour matched Igleheart forks.
Only 15 made and I suspect this is the only one in Europe.

That is (will be) a really really gorgeous looking bike-

Not sure what the actual difference in size is between 650 and 26" but that looks fine/ the forks are suspension corrected so the gap would be there whatever wheel you had in.
