that's teasing! :lol: we want pictures :wink:


Look at the top of the page! :)


did I forget my glasses? :oops:
nope, I'm just a bit tired I guess.

What a beautiful bike!! I love that frame with the modern campy groupset. Super nice wheelset, nothing better then a "simple" mavic CD rim.

Beautiful bike! Love the paint-reminds me of a 92 Yamaha FZR 600 R I had in the same colors.

That's really really nice! Great job!

Though I wish Argos has left the white "picture window" on the headtube for the headtube logo like it had been originally.

thanks for the positive comments guys!

Yo-Nate-Y yes I agree that was requested but they said it would be hard to achieve - the red and blue pearlescent paint is built up on top of the White with some sparkle added in, this means the painter has no opportunity to add the White head tube splodge in at the end and each colour coate makes it disappear some more!

that is super duper sweet!

i love what you've done with the forks and CK headset - my suggestions would be:

1)De- sticker the open pro rims
2)Get the Kelly stem sprayed red or white
3)change the bars for Deda 215 shallow bars - traditional bend

but that's just my opinion! :D
