nice - but lose the red lizard skin as visually it draws the eye away from what is otherwise a nice classy bike

Nice and classy however I agree the lizard skin and what looks like white wall tyres kinda draw the eye away from the elegance and class of this bike.

The last pic looks a completely different purple from the pics before, unless it's my eyes

Nice bike I like the look of the old trek graphics :D

It's the same blue just the light which change... the real color is purple like the third picture.
I agree with you, i have forgetten to remove the lizzard skins i drive with him the last week.

For the tyres, I try to find one pair of ritchey megabites Z-max.
Tomorrow,I post other pict....

Thanks for you compliment.
