Tried it with all black definitely suits the paint better!
Will change the seat,seat post and bars when I find some control tech.

I personally would take no manitou for such a frame with this paint job, but I must admit in this case, it fits quite well.
But please no salsa stem, I think everything will be perfect with black control tech parts (stem, seat post and bars :wink:).

Looking good, black and orange is where I'm going with the DB, it always looks striking and classy.

That front tyre could use some air :roll:

:shock: :evil: :shock: :evil: The horror.

You destroyed a rare and classic seatpost to replace it with a Kore? Hey, to each his own, and it's a great frame, but I would've tried to salvage the post
