Picked up this frame a while back, the decals said Parkpre but I am still not convinced of its true identity. Have had the frame shot blasted and powdercoated by a local company that have done a fantastic job. The rest of the bits have come from my parts bin and bits donated from my too small Pro Image frame. Wanted to keep it a medium spec build so it's all LX, mostly M550 / M560. The wheels came from a Cannondale Killer V I rescued from Cash Convertors, once cleaned up they are truly gorgeous. Here's the spec sheet for the geeks out there...

Very nice Chris :)

I like the blue cable sleeve.
There seems to be a Blue/Grey colour theme on your bikes recently :)
