Here is one in blue:

Pictures have been deleted now, but still see that small one.

Doubt the gold rims will be staying as theyre too heavy/nto strong enough.

The scheme has to fit in with satin silver/gold/black.
Wont be green haha!

Well it was you? i told it was cracked. Is now fixed as of today so picked up tomorrow. Seatpost hasnt been reamed so got a 27.2 post for it and a shim on the way.
Hope brakes should be on it when mate gets his avods bled and put on but the rear caliper has a stripped thread on one of the mounts holes so not sure what to do about that?
And also need a pivot bolt but not sure whats going to fit.

Small update. Hoping for powder coat soon (fingers crossed).
In talks with morewood about gold decals.
Will be satin silver front end and gloss black rear, rims and hubs will be goldtec/nukeproof silver ones (at a much later date due to price!).
Rather a british theme going on.

Rides well.

looking good fella... see you found the Hope QR for the 20mm then? Work ok? Crazy tyre choice! I'm liking the gold. Are you running the Revs at 130mm right now?

This is one i had, im looking for another to match on the rear now.

Works fine, just as well as the rock shox one (same thing really).

The tyres are just so i can ride it to work to test its ok.

Got a rubber queen and muddy mary on it for dirt which i quite like for now.

Hmm they were at 150mm but looks like theyre not showing it. I havent found the sweetspot yet but havent played and tested many steups.

I wonder, would your reba notes apply to your revs?

The gold is a lot, im hoping it will balance out when its painted.

Will probably cut the steerer at some point, think its at around 225!
