Hehe, most of the re-stickered bikes on this site have been supplied decals by Gil, there's more than a few people that'll sing his praises..

I'm quite sure they'll be along shortly too ;)

Ta, be already ordered the decals for the frame off a chap who advertises on eBay. He has sorted me a full custom set for the frame and forks in matching colours.

I'll chat to the guy above! Thanks

Currently trekking it across the south coast from Hastings to bournemouth on the train....... Looking forward to opening my box of goodies!I

thanks to Garry at graphics shack for the colour matching and excellent quality decals.

just a couple more things and it will be exactly how i want it! use carbon bars and seat post, hope/use stem and QR skewers, hope seat clamp, middleburns, and a lighter chain device.

oh and a flipping good ride!!!

need a helmet, recommendations peeps?
