its an interesting comparo to see how a few component choices make the bike look vastly different ( and better imho )

the dolomite with the flite and purple cooks etc looks so much faster, sharper and cooler than the one with silver XT cranks and avocet saddle!


That is the way we did it in NorCal back in the day. ;)

Love the Dolomite with the Magics... just look at how it brings the frame colours out of the picture...


...but then, I'm a colourtyrehighetrist

Cheers for comments.
I actually own two dolomites lol!

And have one running as period rebuilt and the other with 3dv/exotica version.
I'm kinda edging with the plainer build- araya rm20 silver rims, m730 xt group and porc tyres etc.

Love them both,shame they're both hibernating in the winter.
