:shock: Got to be one of the best paint jobs which I've seen. The other being Palmer's 'American Flag' Troy Lee paint job on his Intense M1SL, which I can only find 1 bad pic of on the net :( From what I can remember, the paint job cost $2000 more than the frame :?

GF still downhilling then? What is this bike, a proto? didn't TREK make him sign a non-competition agreement when he sold them his name?

Nice paint, a bit Disney for my liking, but beautifully executed.

While a lot of work has gone into the paint job, it still looks horrible in all respects. [insert vomiting Emoticon]

Its just too pastel baby's room for me.

I hope you at least got some beer or something out of the move...

The bike is pretty sweet but needs some baby blue grips.
