Gorgeous - that paint is actually glowing! Is that stem not a bit long? Looks like the handling would be a bit twitchy?

Nice job - those forks look great.

Good to see a recommendation from 1st choice finishes. About to take my cro mega and my bro's rockhopper there.

Very nice. I had the same bike BITD with P2's on it. Rode really well, but was a bit harsh with no suspension on the front.

I really like the bike. 8) I have a white cindercone on the way myself.

If it were mine I'd do 2 things to put the icing on the cake:

1, Get some repro decals made up in blue to replace the red ones on your Judy's.

2, Fit a slightly shorter, and flatter stem. something less chunky that is of similar diameter to the downtube. Such as Ringle for example

Finally, throw loads of blue annodised bits 'n bolts at it! :lol: (ask Sithlord)

Love the bike, hate the bottle cage, the bike looks lovely and delicate, that bottle cage looks like a brick strapped to the bike, but good job done

Put some proper P2's on it - it makes a hell of a difference in speed and agility.

Are those more gilm decals. I'm thinking white frame and gold p2's and velocity for a build.
