Very , very nice! What size is it? 18.5"? The smaller DeKerfs look well proportioned. 20inchers start to look a bit gangly...
I don't agree about the grips - On a grey bike you need some coloured components, or it will start to look like John Major's bike (Edwina).

Thanks for your nice comments guys ! The frame measure's only 15.5 from bottom bracket to the centre of the top tube or 17.5 to the top of the seat tube. That was also what i was thinking with the grips ...it needed some colour somewhere ! I'm not to sure about the forks and the chainrings so it may get a few tweaks in the future. My wallet needs a rest for abit though !
