I liked the original!

Sorry mate, the paint looks good but red matt frame and red ano is a no no to me :oops:

Lovely frame though.

Much better then the original look!
Although I am a huge ano fanboy, the red is a bit... clashtastic...
But your the one that rides it and has to be happy with it, so tell us to suck eggs! :lol:

I think its the fact that the decals aren't the right ones!! I quite like the colour, but there is too much of it!!!!

Are they lacquered over? if not speak to Gil_m on here. He should be able to do an exact match on the period correct ones, maybe do a colour change on them also!!

IMHO of course!!! 8)

Other than that...cool bike!

I prefer the new colour, but that stem looks way too long. does it not handle like a barge? :? Needs less red too, but aesthetics ain't as important as handling. Try it with a shorter stem mate.

Good to hear the negative comments :lol:
I like people to not piss about :)

Stem is fine for me and it's a brand new Hope stem.
It's not much different to the RaceFace that was on it for a few years.

Stickers are laquered over ;)
