Nice build there mate, liking the black seatpost gives it a nice contrast against those bright gleeming colours!! Just dont be tempted to put any green mud guards on her!! :D Happy riding AAAA** build!!

No, they'd clash horribly with the yellow! Now if you could get hold of a pink pair... :lol:

Seriously though, absolutely gorgeous bike; with or without a silver post :wink:
