Really liking this a lot! I had one about a year or so ago that suffered cracked chainstays. Possibly the best colourway for that Specialized model year IMO..

I passed the frame onto another member on here (onza100?) with a set of good shape direct drive forks in the correct colourway - I'm not sure what happened to the frame but he may be worth giving him a shout if you fancy the option of going rigid :)

Thanks Gaz, the forks havent been serviced yet, despite weeping a bit of oil from the right leg they are working perfectly and hold air very well.

Thanks :D

I haven't seen any others in this colour scheme so they might be few and far between, looks better in the flesh to be honest.
