Bjornar,
Wow, that is amazing! The color turned out great and the type 2 fork is a great mate. It is pretty cool to have both of them together.
Thank you for sharing,
Andrew

Amazingly cool build taking place. Those Porcs fit perfectly with the frame.

Thanks. I hope the all black build will be ok here, but let's see... Can go both ways.

I even have all black XT thumbies for it ;)

What do all black XT thumbies look like? Not sure I’ve seen solid black before. M730?
