self installed the red CK headset. my first ever attempt instead of getting a shop to do it. HS went smooth but i'm going to avoid working on an AMP fork in the future. such a pain in the arse to remove and install the crown race/baseplate! :x

Gorgeous build :) ! I love all the red elements on the silver frame. I'd leave the frame, I think the slightly industrial look is superb and the red jockeys are a great touch :) .

I'd like to be in that position -- worrying about multiple bikes to break in!
