I must admit that it's a pet hate of mine seeing part builds with bare rims as my little brain can never seem to manage to get an image of the completed bike without tyres fitted. Having said that, I can't wait to see this with tyres as it's going to be stunning 8)

I know what you mean but until the cables are in and I set the Canti's the tyres must stay off (adjusting cantis with the tyres on is a lot harder)

Won't be too long now, hopefully.......... He says as its only taken about 2 YEARS to get this far!!!

Thanks for sharing.
Both bikes appear stunning.
The Bontrager paint finish is super, Race Lites, for me are the gold standard, I compare all bikes to it.

The Orange Prestige frames hold their own against the very best.
Please assess and let us know how they ride.

Thanks guys, you're keeping the fire burning but as you may have noticed.... I'm not exactly fast when it comes to a build, let alone 2!

Anyway, should be another update next week. :D
