That's looking fecking sweet! 8) ... and very red. You should definitely enter in this months BoTM.

My only critique or suggestion would be to try a silver (Syncros Ti?) seatpost. I think the black looks a bit "heavy" up top.

yeah i agree on a silver seatpost. but the seatpost is a very ODD and hard to come by 30.4mm size. I tried a 30.2mm RaceFace XY at one point and I really liked the look of it on the build. but because it was a tad too small, it took more force to tighten than I would have felt comfortable with. and the alum RM frames of that generation (Cirrus, Experience and Nimbus) are known to be prone to cracking at the seat clamp area. :(

I have a couple of Tange forks off some RMs, one off the Experience and another off an Equipe. I think the Experience is a Big Fork. I'll have a look at the steerer length and get back to you tonite. ;) But not sure if it'll have the length you need. :(

I know this is a old thread but what a beautiful build. Thought maybe some of the newer guys like myself should check it out.
