I wondered what had happened to my old frame, this is far beyond anything I expected! 8)
True to Dagger's roots too, they always presented colourful boutique bikes in ads and PR.

Top build!! (although I preferred the carbon brace myself :wink: )


Turned out really good mate and yep thats what i thought what a difference the Lamborghini green made to the frame, i was well chuffed and so is my mate as well. he is not a big biker but loves it :D the only change i'm making to the Dagger now is the Turquoise Ringle seatpost when it arrives and Lambo badge up front then its sorted :D

As for the Shock bone carbon brace i'm putting it back on soon when the Ringle seatpost arrives :D as i'm same mate it does look so mush nicer in the flesh with that carbon brace on the bike and should look much better with the turquoise seatpost all in 8)

Kell i know what you mean looking at the car there black but i would what them changing for bigger better wheel lol, these wheels i already chose spin so nice and look good like a proper speed machine lol.. .and my mate loves the build with these wheels, black wheels for another day! :D
