It's pretty much built, just need to paint the fork brace and setup the brakes
Here's a little teaser, Blue jockey wheels, Green pivot bolt, pink cassette lock ring, gold chain, silver cassette, purple qr bolt, sunset rims, gold and purple spoke nipples.
So much anodised goodness!!!!!!!!
If I get time to do some more work on it tomorrow I'll post more pics.

Well finally got her done, pretty much.
Only thing left to do is shorten the hoses for the maguras.
Still looking for a 90mm zooka, and a some ano coloured Paul's or precision engineering derailuers. Oh maybe some of those rainbow speed play SPD's would be nice too.
But you can now bask in all her colourful glory!

The ultimate would be ano derailleurs too, something like Pauls. Also the rings need to be changed. :)
I love it!

Holy Brake hoses!

Me Likey. That has more charm than a 'catalogue' dolomite Attitude.

Thats great, I love the brightness. It looks spot on.

Can you imagine going on a ride out with lots of modern bikes, how it wold stand out from all the modern monochrome dullness! Top work.
