Love the bike, in some ways very like the ti fat that's around at the momment

if I had a negative comment, the decals...they look like a kid with a home printer did them and seems to dumb down a really lovely bike

loving the bike though

They are not decals, it is titanium anodising, Leni Fried was the go-to person for this in the early 90s, along with doing some of the cooler one-off Fat City paint jobs.

Very, very nice, I love the art.

Leni Fried was (and I suppose still is) a true master at anodizing artwork.

that's unfortunate to have that permanency on something that looks so amatuerish given the other examples look so cool

still it would be boring if we all liked the same stuff
