Those guys are as good as they say they are. Amazing factory look there. maybe I'll have to send my rigids off to em for some of that silver.

suprisingly they are only a small workshop in bristol

when i dropped the frame off. the paintwork was ruined, so i handed them a couple pics of YOUR prestige, (being the same bike)i found in readers bikes(sure you dont mind :D ) and they repainted the frame just by looking at them

very good color match as well

Ace, I actually bought mine as I was in the market for a performing all year round retro I wouldn't worry about too much, it turned out to be nicer than I thought and I can see it getting built quite clean too! oh well, not a bad thing that. Summat else to look after.

Will watch this thread, be nice job building it fresh.
