Completed in the kitchen this morning due to foul weather, yet to be tested since build bar a potter down the road.

Many thanks to Rody for the decals and advice, both absolutely superb.

Hope you like the colour matched kettle, a sweet touch I thought.

Was the kettle the inspiration for the Yo colour, or 2008's must have accessory?!!

Love it Ed, what does she weigh? 20lbs??

Go and get it dirty, the weathers foul I know, but your 'double hard' aren't you! :wink:

(ok, I've just got back from a ride; cold, soaked to the skin, can't see the colour of my bike for mud, numb hands even with full finger gloves, wet feet......I don't blame you for staying in :lol: )

Looking really great Ed - the black finishing kit really compliments the frame.

Be interested to hear how that fork rides?

I've got the same fork on another bike and they ride really well - not particularly light but solid and certainly tracks well. Sadly the newer versions of the forks are either disc only or disc and v (as well as being longer forks) - I suppose there's insufficient market for a low cost canti/v only shortish fork
