Yes those ltd. edition paint jobs where just epic. i hope you get your bike painted like that @Paddyrider, that would be sick.

@majklnajt I really like the all black look of the new stealth 3T, i'am just not mad about the quality they make.
Maybe i should give some blacked out Easton a try, i'll think about that.

Btw. i have finished the front wheel today. Looking good i think

Still could kick myself for not buying one of those System 6's with that natural aluminum/carbon finish ,,,

Or, paint an Easton 10 degree stem into 3T stealth :thumbup:

edit: or paint the -17 3T stem into "stealth".... if you can ride that drop.... or leave more spacers....
I find 2 cm of spacers reasonable looking...

Another thing about the bike is, that the fork steerer is very short. definitely no room for spacers, and a stem with 36mm in stack height would be the best. Some would call it a problem, i think it's perfect :D ( my back don't )

Those were the best dale years - right before they sold. The six 13 was a little of a mess, but a great bike - had one myself. They made the seat tube carbon, then not. Then they came out with the system six which is still is and will always be one bad a$$ bike. The best dale they ever made - way better than the EVO.

Enjoy - looking forward to the build.

I made a great deal ( about 300 euro ) on some zipp 404's, with cracked hubs. i sold the hubs, and got some brand new Mig-Mag's.
And here they are, better than new.

This was mine before I sold it

Would have kept it if it was one size bigger. It was pieced together for the most part but I loved it!
