Loving this bike (if not the pink outers - sorry :D ).

Always good to see more photos of it. Wish there were more Univegas on here!

Keep up the good work!

I think I'm kind of with you on the cables, but they were expensive so will stay for a while- black would have been a bit more "hard" but still a great machine. You are right would be nice to see a few more.

seems pretty comfy and long enough, don't think it will be better than the sloping geo of the splatter but should make me more "retro" at the trail centre shindigs.

Agree with you coomber, the pink cables are awesome.

they are, aren't they 8)

anyone have some technical knowledge on whether they added something to the performance or indeed not, as the case may be?
