It seems the blue is a marmite thing

personally not a fan as I feel it draws the eye away from the paint. That said whatever or however you do it, it does look quite minty and the paint is lush

Lovely bike.

Not to nit pick and i'm sure you know this but the Joe's cable hangers are on backwards (bolts usually face outward). Maybe it was for a cleaner look?

Also, both sets of brakes are Joe's rear. Front have a much more vertical design, like Grafton's.

I like the anodized blue!

You may well have Jon, I bought it already repainted.

If you did - thank you! - I think it looks (and rides) bloody great! :D :D

Nit-picking is good: thanks very much for the catches!! :D
I didn't even know what type of brakes they are... :oops:
