thats the style in which i'd do it, 8) i always like the aquafades done with all the blue or green ano but i prefer the subtle builds with silver and black more because i think the paintwork is amazing enough without adding more colour.

awsome build :D

Much better with the King wheelset. Classy, nice, and it would be a much better looking bike in the flesh. I saw your Serotta in the Bikes and Coffee topic on dirty pages. Nice bikes!

Thats much much better, amazing the difference a wheelset can make. Never did like those funny rear wheels :lol: Silver post is a nice improvement too, looks cleaner and better balanced.

Whats this about a Ritchey I hear?

Allways loved the Tioga but on some kind a "normal" wheelset looks much prettier :D
