Nice setup!

Really like the clear grips on the Syncros bar... I have the exact same bar so I will definateky go clear grips =)

Are those Paul brakes still sold new? Look sweet!

How well do they work??

Never was overly keen on the Paul Motolite Vs, so swapped them out for a set of Avid Arch Supreme. Eventually will swap out the Paul Love levers for the matching set Avid Ultimate SD when I get a chance.

Interesting.... often thought of stripping a Dekerf frame and clear coating...

No offence intended, but it just looks a bit drab... Is it just the pictures or is that an accurate description...

I only ask for future knowledge as I'm unlikely to be in Canada anytime soon to see it in the flesh!

Rich :D

Would love these brakes at some point too. Especially with the matching levers like those. 8)

Avid Arch Supremes are some of, if not the best brakes I have ever had. The stopping power is amazing.

No offense taken. I don't think it's any less drab than say a raw Ti or Aluminum frame, of which I also own two of each. Maybe it's just my taste but I like the minimalist look. I need to get the clear coat redone, and at that point maybe I'll get some decals on it to make it a little more appealing.

As for comments about the Arch Supreme… yeah lovely set of brakes/levers, hence why this is my second set. ;)

some updates…

recently tidied up a set of silver Avid Ult SD-L levers so installed them.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=292362

also picked up a RF Team SL headset to replace the CK headset, so while i was at it, also swapped out the Syncros bar and seatpost for Air alloy and XY to make it all Race Face kit.
