So beautiful!

The saddle is better than that horrible WTB with its broken nose. Just needing to remove those red decals :)

I do not agree with you Pierre, she has a little red touch like Newsboy's headbadge.

Specialized has equipped many competing brands, Ritchey or WTB has done the same. They are equipment manufacturers.

First step, correctly finish the top of the broken fork: machining, internal sanding and polishing before bonding.
