Hello, I bought this frame from over in the classified after finally admitting my current frame was too big.

It looked like this:

Now it looks like this:

The frame colour hasn't come out to well in the picture but in real life is a metallic grey, which i think looks pretty good. Haven't had a chance to ride it yet (other than around the block) as I need a new brake inner and a serrated washer for the rear caliper. I'm also pretty sure that I want some wider bars.

I think I'd also like to get some decals but for one I'm scared about fitting them, and second graham weigh decals are ugly.

Nice looking job you've done, but it is crying out for decals :)

I'm pretty sure Graham Weigh has vinyl decals, you may even be able to get a set off the man himself. Vinyl is easy to apply if you wipe the tube with soapy water, that way the vinyl doesn't grab and you will be able to position it properly. Then rub down with some bog roll peel off the release paper backer and leave to dry.

Jobs a gud un :)

I'm not really convinced by the font, nor the two tone. The other option is

But looking at the frames they attach to I think they may be a bit big for the small tubes.
