Now I know I'm undoubtedly in a resounding majority of 1, and some would say I should keep my opinion to myself, but I just don't like this paint scheme! :oops:

Lovely bike yes, and the black & yellow makes sense and looks terrific, but to my eye this one is just too gaudy and doesn't complement the lines of the frame?

So there you are; another lesson in how to win friends and influence people

:oops:

Looks nice Rob.

Whats with the Magura's? 987s would complement the frame better I think........ but they stop much less well!!
