Yup, definately sweet frames. Light isnt the word in this ss build :shock:

Not gone off gears, just missed my ss Tequesta, so nice nice to have the option when the going is muddy.

Decals have landed, so will apply tonight and post up finished photos 8)

Thanks.

Have to agree, it was a bit plain before, but the stickers have brought it to life.

Thats sorted it... Decals have bought it to life... I had a red one, it went like a road bike, so light and stiff...


(I'd skip the grips but thats just me... )
