That's very impressive - what a transformation! Looking forward to seeing it built-up.

Got the frame back from Spectrum yesterday and I have to say I'm very-very impressed!! The colors are amazing and spot on. There are no flaws that I can find in the finish, no overspray, decals are spaced perfectly and the details are amazing. Overall a fantastic job.

I'm going to try a couple of iterations with the build.

Chris King (logo or no logo) vs Ringle Slamma Jamma (all in turquoise)
Silver or turquoise Ringle Zooka Stem
Turquoise Ringle wheels on either silver of hard anodized Mavic 117
M900 or silver Topline cranks
Silver or turquoise Hyperlite bars
Ringle twist or holeys in Turquoise

I might get the cable guides reanodized, all of the blue ones I have are slightly faded, but not terrible. There are two more Moby posts on the way, best one will stay on this bike.

Drivetrain is all M910 XTR and in mint condition. Can't wait to get this thing put together. Nice things is that once I'm done I'll already have enough spare parts to build the other ARC with all pretty blue pieces!!

Awesome!!.

The post is a bit too blue, I think a turquoise one would be just perfect!

Yeah that Moby was from a later year where the blue ended up more "cobalt" than turquoise.
