You know I keep seeing this bike pop up and can't help but wonder if the colour scheme is a big factor affecting the sale? I always thought this particular colour was a love and hate thing, with myself leaning firmly to the latter. :wink: Hopefully I'm in the minority and you can shift it soon.

Have a colourful free bump. 8)

I personally love the deep red colour, and the price is tempting!

Cheers for the comments guys.
I think the colour is a bit marmite but it's only the spine that lets it down a bit if i was keeping i'd strip & polish forks,rear + spine as the carbon weave under the red lacquer is lush in the flesh 8)
But not enough time & cash forces sale :cry:

No problem.
They do come up small though i'm 5'8 with a 31 inside leg & a medium was too small (had to fit longer stem & a set back post as it was too cramped)
My current Purpleen Raven is a large & is a perfect fit. :wink:
