Have to agree, not as stealthy as the XLM on here a while back with silver & white parts

Can see lots of effort and euro's in that build but not my cup of tea. Nice frame and fork combo.

Like the red, but not the white cables or grips and white tyres, too much going on, balck grips and cables and tyres and standard spoked wheels would be far better.

I think all pewter Ringle parts or just all trick Ti components would look more lush. On that note...I need that stem for my YO :wink:
