Quite satisfied with the job, preparations could have been a bit better, you still do see some scratches under the paint...next time!

Liked it as a backfire, can't say the grey does much for me even though it's done well. But it's not mine.

Please can you tell me which seatpost you have used. I have a Syncros that has failed and don't want to use another as I think the design is flawed.

many thanks

Should be a Tune "Starkes Stück" :) Lighter than Syncros, too! Tune is a German brand, manufacturing very lightweight stuff. And quite nice to look at, too.

Thanks for letting me know. I knew it was going to be expensive so now I will have a hunt.

Thanks
