I have visions now of you putting all of your Orange gear on eBay, in disgust at their antics :lol:

Must confess I think my next build will be vee's, just for a change! Mark if you don't mind me asking, and PM if you like, how much did the XT groupset set you back?

Interestingly enough this is the first time I have seen another Vit T with no seat bolt eyes (not that I have looked hard). Thought mine was unique in that respect.

Mine is the 1 1/8" Headtube version. Must get around to my build thread soon - although when you see the frame you may have to look away....

Frame is back from the finishers, and that was £15 well spent!
I really like the matte finish....

Chucked the frame on my luggage scales, while it was naked....

Decals also arrived from Gil yesterday, so I got busy with those. I wanted to protect them, so cut some matte helicopter tape a mm bigger than the decals and applied this over the top.
Only got one fitted last night though, as I had a bbq to enjoy :D

Forks arrived this week too, and some ti X-lite bars. Won some XT/Hope/Mavic 217 wheels last night, so it's all starting to come together.

Love that finish - bargain for £15. Does it have a sparkle or is that just the camera.

It does seem to have a 'sparkle' in sunlight. The chap who did it for me was saying how titanium gives off purple sparks when blasted!
Wish I'd been there with my camera
