That is spectacular... A couple of nicely-placed Mavic stickers wouldn't look out of place on it.

Have you had a chance to ride it yet? What sort of wheels have you got in mind?

i always liked those frames, i think they look retro-futuristic if that makes sense! also with the Mavic groupset it looks spot on.

very cool machine :)

Awesome bike!

Get some mid 90's Mavic Cosmic Pro's on it.

Anyone know the difference between the KG186 and the KG196? Why was the KG196 (team issue) higher spec over the 186?
To the untrained eye they look the same.
