I didn't remember that you did buy those Grafton RF pods...
The bike is really really nice now. Jon did a great job with that MC1.

Maaria must be pretty satisfied with the outcome?

That is stunning. If they're the bars Jon painted, I cannot tell the difference.

Yep, she is very satisfied... good for me :lol:

I could swap Gravity Research -levers for Graftons... :roll:
Yep, Jon painted bars! Perfect job!

I dont like tires, what you say? Black ones?
Also chainrings were better as black?

Tires could be black (with skinwall) or something like Panaracer Magics? On the other hand, the Michelins fit the colour scheme quite well.
Wild suggestion: blue Nokian tires? :wink:

Silver chainrings are better. The black ones make it look heavy. Probably the largest ring could be black but middle & small should be silver.

That is a beautiful bike

Tyres IMO are a bit overkill but never been a fan of coloured tyres....prefer it with the originals
