Yep, the bigger wheels just look better don't they?
Agree on the seatpost, still looking for an 410mm silver Thomson (took the black one from the Polkadot just for the picture :wink: )

Nice one, and proper tires are a big improvement imho.

Really like the visual impact of the black rims too with the black frame sections, but I think I'd prefer the silver post matching the stem & cranks in a triangle. And is that a Mary bar you've fitted?

Enjoy!!
