Love the satin - it is the sort of effect I am looking for. Very smart, well done fella

Cheers fellas, Argos do such a fine paint job and Gil's decals finished it off, the pics don't really do it justice the finish is fantastic. It's great fun to ride, really light and very quick, I've only had a chance to ride it on the road, not managed to get off road since the new baby came along but hopefully this weekend.

I found this so inspiring I just bought the same frame set to build my own.

It won't get resprayed until it's all built up and sorted and will probably get drops on it then off to Argos for Aubergine paint.....

Look forward to seeing it built up, this now has a white industries freewheel on it and a bigger chainring, I use it mostly for road commuting and it's light and fast, putting a 48 on the front this weekend for a bit more speed. It rides lovely.

its amazing how big you can go on the front for road use. i'm rumming a 52 up front with an 18 on the back! downhill its awesome and most short uphills are a doddle! end up looking like stuart pierce after a lond up hill drag though....
