Thanks Pickle... bit easier on the eyes now 8)

I've always heard these ride well and i was not dissapointed. It is nothing short of dreamy and luckily the stem combo i went for means it fits me like a glove.

Anyone know if Dean actually built these or if it was Sandvik/ that other boutique Ti builder?
