Looks really nice mate. Which photos are closest to the true colour - the frame only pic looks like a much darker orange?
Its in between the two! There is a distinct lack of daylight in the evenings these days... Will try and get some decent pics at the weekend.
Spec list indicates this is a rider not a a garage queen, will get used for mudguards and racked up touring duty as well as the odd off road foray. Gearing choice reflects this - I wanted skinny hubs & 8 speed so settled on M900, the bike needs a wide range of gears for touring and MTB so I have fitted an 11-32 cassette to go with the non compact chainrings.
