Sunshine just makes this paint pop!

I stuck some kit I have hanging around just to see how it sits.. Wheelset is good [Black XTII, Specialized GXL21s], maybe swap out the QRs, and the treads are wrong I know.. Need some Ritcheys ideally..

I could go Catalogue Build on this, but that seems a little kinda " :? ", so might sneak in the odd bit of custom kit 8)
