Fast commuter indeed! Very nice, wouldn't call a Graham Weigh 531 mutton exactly!

What is the chainstay protector, one of those neoprene things? I'm looking for one for my forthcoming respray job.

yes woven material with a bit of velcro along the long edge - it doesn't stick to the frame just wraps around the stay. Seems to do the job and not too much of a mountain bike look I think...
