Tiny update.

Too much Turquoise? Please give me your thoughts. :)

The Joe's Canti are to be swapped into turquoise Graftons (incoming). Alternatives are black XT 734 (see pic below) or black Grafton (incoming).


Alternative setup: yellow GT Flip-flop stem, black headset.

The Ringle Twister for the seatpost clamp will be swapped against a Camtwist. As the tube has a diameter of 29.6, I cannot use a Ringle collar. I will probably take the Salsa 30.0 you see mounted.

I will tackle the decals issue in a few days.

Turquoise Grafton Speed Controllers have arrived. Thanks, Chris! :)

Any ideas? Too much turquoise?

Turquoise looks good to me, against the decals..

Build it how you want, not by the opinions of others.. :wink:

Bars, seatpost. hubs and brakes etc are fine but i'd loose the Ringle stem, the GT flip/flop is one of the nicest cool features on these frames (IMHO)
