IMHO black does not suit that color combo but then, who am I (maybe its the black spokes).

Frame seems to be in great condition though, good it is not 17.5", I need my money in the bank :P

Yeh reluctant to do a blue one (sick of blue) but thats what these are usually seen dressed up in...and I also had a hell of a lot of black ringle/grafton stuff so it was ideal...

Front and rear cantis are Graftons.Front is silver though :(

oh, according to bikepedia, mine is a 31.8mm seat tube so it's yours if you can replace it?

Front Derailleur Shimano STX, top-pull/clamp-on 31.8 mm <-- original equipment and I now have the M900 front mech on it.

Jez, I'm glad that frame is in your hands. Everything looks like its coming along nicely.

IMO, a team ARC paintjob deserves team decals, like this one -

I'm sure Gil could draw some up.

Just my $.02 :wink:
