Not for everyone's taste on here I am sure but here is my 97/8 Klein Pulse Comp.....I wanted a single speed bike for knocking around town on so built this. Though, after messing around with the gearing I have concluded single speeds are useless (for me) where I live as there are too may hills! I just got the frame(and Cannondale fork) back from John Whiteman Engineering(Powdercoaters) in Long Eaton, Notts. The pics REALLY don't do it justice. In the flesh its a lovely pearl grey with metallic flecks that looks stunning in the sun. I think all the blue shit looks nice with the grey and white. Tips the scales at 20.5lb too
Im chuffed with it at least :-) ......splitsville soon I am sure

Well I like it.

Loving the grey with the blue. Very nice job you have done & a bit of fred salmon added for good measure.

So do you remove the shock and it is like a regular 1 1/8" fork?

Yep! I struggled find a crown race to fit as the base of the steerer is a fraction wider in diameter than 1 1/8"
