Favourite bike colour, and top tubing too! Never had a Max frame. Stiff as a very stiff thing I'd guess

You could compress the middle of the top tube between finger and thumb. Really nice paint job.

If i'd known you were going to put RED cables on it I'd've given you a couple of metres of black!

It was going to be pink but I'd run out of gear outer.

Shakedown ride - blimey!

350g rims and 190g tyres meant everything spun up so very quickly.

Finding the hills, theres no flex to speak of. Sometimes you can see the bottom bracket swinging away on some frames - but not this one. Its stiff but only in a pedal and the bike moves rather than an ooh thats not nice.

Its kind of made everything else redundant now though.

Shorter Cinelli stem, nicer bars and yes, gold tape. Its my bicycle! Anyway, that grey stuff disintegrated so it had to come off.
