Nice Chris, that looks loved, and ready for more. Good use of RS-1s.

That tubeset has a far more illustrious history than people know.

ok ok, I just saw some posts on VRC about Reflex bikes when I was looking up Easton E9 tubing (that I've got on one of my road bikes)... indeed an interesting history, and built in Salt Lake City if those on VRC are to be trusted.

Love the Ringle/down tube colourways Chris!

BTW I have a similar NOS model for sale if anyone is interested.

thanks for your comment .

I am waiting for a scan of RS1 stickers , and I ll ask Gill to make me some in red .
I know RS1 had different colour schemes , I remember seeing some in yellow .

it would be nice to get a RS1 crown though .
