Ok,

After the overwhelmingly apathy I thought that no one had a bad thing to say so went and agreed to take it... :-)

Will post pics later in the week.[/code]

Sorry,
Missed your first post.

I've got a 1st generation Roadster which I cannot fault.
Fits me great, is super responsive and considering the size of the alu tubes is reasonably comfy.

I have heard stories of them cracking around the BB area, and it is a pain in the arse keeping them clean in front of the rear wheel.

I've never seen another in the flesh, and only a couple on ebay.

Have you bought the blue frame off ebay?

Got one too. Love mine. I ride it on long rides as a braked fixie.

It is a pain to remove the rear brake when I use it at the track but apart from that I think it's fantastic - and it looks amazing.

Nope, a friend had it and needed space.. It's black with a few areas of oxidation on the top tube - no dings or dents, but has been well ridden.

Going to use as my commuter so I don't think I'll respray., but does need some brake bocks. ;-)
