that's the first time i have seen this thread, as usual argos do a perfect paint job. i have a nickel p7project on the go, luckily at the moment the nickel finish is ok for the most part but i can see it needing a paint job at some point, i inquired about having it nickel plated again and there was talk of 400!!!!
argos single colours with stickers are from £130 so i think it'll be paint when the time comes!
as far as the handling goes i recently have been riding mostly retro, vit t, evo2, e3, tonight i rode my 07 clockwork(1st time in 3 months) and i forgot how different the geometry is and stuggled finding the balance point on hills, you know, that point where if you lean forward the rear wheel spins and if you lean back the front lifts! climbing on old skool bikes is much easier!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
