Tange decal refitted with some carefully trimmed double sided tape.
Got a pair of nos amberwall ritchey alpha and omega bites, but prefer wildgrippers for riding.
Chain protector will be gone when sharkfin arrives.

First ride should be tonight provided I get home from work at a decent hour!

Have to agree with the above that this is the best colour for a frame. Stunning.

Also agree that some black tyres would look better, but thats only my opinion.

Nice build.

Looking much nicer without the Wildgrippers - I'd quite happily give it houseroom, except it would be too big for me. What size frame is it - 19"?

Cool anyway 8)

Spot on,those last few tweaks made a big difference. Put some proper pedals on it and it's not far from my idea of mountain bike perfection... If only it were a size smaller. Glad I don't have a bike as nice as that otherwise I think I'd never use it for fear of getting it dirty after all that effort!
