Might just be my eyes or does that phot make the frame look like it's glowing. Certainly very bright 8)

Will look superb with that build list I reckon

Sweet. Aren't you a bit worried considering what happened to the last Pro 825 that had a white finish? It will be interesting to find out how the powder coat deals with such a whippy flexible frame. Can't wait to see it built up.

That is uber-cool. How did the powdercoater get it to stick to the nickel plating? assuming the lacquer was remover first of course.

That looks lovely, everything looks just in proportion and the splashes of blue really compliment it. Very nice clean build, now lend it to me so I can thrash it :twisted:
