It is nice, as it is, I'm just defending the provenance of the Litey forks... 8) 8)

And judging by the height of the seat, he's about 210cm tall, so I'm not going to upset him... :oops: 8) :shock:

yummy yummy,

looking really good. Think you made the right choice with Black chainrings, and the rear mech is a nice touch of something a little different.. 8)

exactly!!

and the colouring of the bike works great too. The yellow in the decals, cables and tire logo's, the brownwall tires works great with the colour of the saddle.
I little more classy and less screaming than the usual litespeed build IMHO.
