its looking tat way but i hate being beaten by bikes...plus its 90 percent built...just waiting on two bolts ,some washers and the dreaded seatpost...i have to say once again its a lovely frame ...builds up very light,i just hate the new deore rear mech on there...i wish i had something a bit older like a silver campy mech instead....
