After getting up at seven for bacon and eggs, walking the dogs, delivering a frame, posting some wheels, I finally go into the shed of love......

Why are the little things the hardest to decide?

After removing the old stickers i spent the princely sum of £1.99 on ebay's finest personalised vinyl. The red fork tape was left over from Frank the 69er's makeover for last year's mayhem. The head tube badge was a make up free postage buy on planet x a couple of years ago. Other than that and cable inners, everything else was shedware.

Went out for a little spin. Very short and nimble. I'd forgotten about fork dive after riding rigid for so long. Nearly had me off. Lock out works well.

The blue lockout knob has given me an idea........

Red white and blue? Not too over the top though. Blue qrs, growler top cap, pedals?

Just missed pair of blue panaracers. Probably for the best.

My thought exactly. I have two turquoise but they clash. Off to flea bay.
