Very tidy and good to see that being correctly attired features highly in the list of priorities. Signature build coming......?

Not wanting to be contrary but I actually prefer just the middle tube being in red, really highlights the e-stay design and almost looks like a bright slash across a plain white conventional frame. Then again I've been at a computer all day and my eyes are a bit boggly.

just found a seller with a 17" locally. i've emailed the person to see if he still has it available. At the very least, maybe I can get some pics of the bike. Quoting the sellers ad, and as Neil G stated, full XT and Syncros.

how light/heavy is a Summit frame? As opposed to say something like my Cirrus frame?

my vote is full red lowers as well.

Read somewhere how heavy...and its heavy :lol:

IIRC catalogue says its heavier by 1/2 or 3/4lb than a normal frame or something.
