8) Awesome job buddy, I love the job you've done on the OR, its very unusual to see a Bontrager painted too, as you know, when new, they were powder coated quite thickly for durability. I really like the fact that due to the fact that the paint finish is thinner than the usual powder, the quality of the welds and gussets are much easier to see. There is very little about the build that I would change, and that's one of the first times I've been able to say that about a bike! In my opinion everything is just perfect apart from the brake levers (I'd go for all black SS5) and the fact that I'd have to have all the chainrings in black. Just fantastic though mate, keep up the good work!!
I want those forks!!
Im glad someone Noticed...!!! i have another one in blue with yellow decals that i was lucky enough to buy from a member here for really hard use, this one had been powdered twice in my time, and felt it was about time i built this particular frame with all the bits i had collected, sadly its still not there to be fair, as i am waiting on certain parts to arrive/be avaliable, brakes being the one of the main components.
And i have to agree with the rings whole heartedly.
p.s if a pair of forks come up i will let you know straight away.
cheers for taking the time to post with your thoughts mate, means a lot coming from you bud.
