I really like the look of staggered hubs fueng suey (sp?) or something i guess. I went with the red bits because honestly i had a few laying around but also was sold on it because i felt like it was real classy looking. no green bits laying around.

I would love to see a pic of my twinsy StumpJumper!!!

Having the wheels built as you all know is real pricey. but this bike had to have wide rims because of the rear brake spacing... I want to find some nice inexpensive v-brakes and levers and probably put them on a riser bar to bring down the STEAL ME factor and overall cost of the bike. I just have the hardest time opting for inexpensive bits... i Always go for the good stuff on my bikes and then i am afraid to keep them locked up at the pub or where ever... idiot. even my commuter/winter bike has some good jazz on it.

and with decals: i have the Kilauea top tube one i got from Hoegaardenadds1 but need the rest and was hesitant to start putting them on until i have em all. but ideally i will have this thing stickered-up

Very nice ride, why not post it in the Singlespeed thread as well. Very nice build, classy and functional kit, looks fast indeed and not your average pub bike.

I cannot make out the colour on my screen, is it a metallic silver or a solid stealthy grey? Personally I would rotate the bars so they have upsweep, good for the wrists and a bike just looks less dynamic with "droopy" bars. As for the red bits, I like em, but the style police in Holland is very strict about matching the seat clamp and headset colours ....

Enjoy!!

the colour is "Champagne" tan with faint sparkly bits. real subtle though.
