I didn't have the Odyssey for long (less than a month i think?!) before it was stolen but i rode it quite a lot and really enjoyed it on the singletrack stuff, didn't feel 28lbs on the go.. really nice ride, I look forward to the developments :D

I think its the same frame/tubeset by the way.. in case you didn't already know..

Picked up the frameset from the painters yesterday and it's looking fanbloodytastic. The re-spray was done by JLH Racepaint in Carlisle who did a fantastic job colour matching the original grey. It's looking like new again can't wait to get this one finished :D

Just giving the stem top cap a re-paint and polishing up some of the bits ready for assembly tomorrow.

Well It's finally finished (for now, might change the seatpost). Really pleased with how this one has turned out the fresh paint and decals mean this bike is looking like new again. Enjoy the pics :D

They really do. I have such great memories of owning one of these and I think its fantastic that you've stuck to stock spec. Proper timewarp moment for me. Nice one.

Describing it as perfection might be stretching it a bit but it couldn't have turned out better for me, thanks.
