Beautiful :)

Would you mind if I included one of your pictures in my thread on Stumpy colour choice? Yours are the first pictures I have come across of a real bike in that colour!

Cheers,

Fred

Really nice that. Agree with the comments above about the colour, don't think I've seen one in that colour before.

Some good inspiration for my '92 build.

Absolutley beautiful 8)

Don't hate me for saying this, but just my opinion, as nice as the A-TAC is, I do feel a skinny stem would look better, somethng like a Ritchey Forcelight. Minor criticism :oops:

Still love the bike though :D
