Yeah I'm well happy with it..... :wink:

Yep, the Bullseye was there with it. Shame it's red ano - I don't do red Ano :oops: :cry: Luckily I got a matching Purple ano one in a box somewhere.

It rides really well, this one, I think, weirdly that brace at the bottom of the headtube has somehow stiffened the frame up a tad. :?

Karma Bullseye hub :shock: let me have a think about it, cos I do owe you one................. :oops: :oops:

Speaking of which, yeah it looks better than when you picked it up, cos I've cleaned all their dirt off :lol: :lol: :lol: and the IRC tyres make a huge difference to looks IMO :wink: 8)

Think it needs a Flite Ti on it now, to finish it off..?
