beautiful with the complete grafton kit :D

don't care much for the black wall tires, though some tan wall umma gummas wold be great. The umma gumma seat works well with the tires, but as others have stated, the flite would go better with the race theme of the bike.

again, beautiful build...love the shiney grafton contrasting the carbon frame 8)

Great to see another S-Works on here.

They are brilliant frames, you've made a good job with the build, and it looks to be in excellent condition (aren't all of Kai / ex-Kai bikes?!).

If you change the Flite, please let me buy your Pro-Long saddle...

...as anyone on here would attest, I have been after one for ages!

(for another S-Works if that helps butter you up any...)

Well, the flite is on now... and yeah I like that better so I guess I could sell you that grey saddle. But it's not the perforated one, just wanted to point that out to you. Aren't you after a perforated one?

Now only thing I can do is wait for my Grafton stuff to arrive, give that a quick polish and put it on the bike... can't wait! :-)

Could you send me some close-up pics of your saddle please Void?

Beggars can't be choosers - perforations or not, it might just do!

Cheers,
BB.
