That's a great build. Thumbs up+++. Loving the wheels selection - a bit modern but they look fantastic on it with the Syncros rims. Have you ridden it yet?

As a former naysayer, I think that turned out great! 8) My only complaint is the yellow grips -- you need to change them to fluro yellow or black. The plain yellow clashes with the TaperLites.
