Dodge, that's really nice! Wish the cranks were stealth...kinda draws attention from the frame as-is. Otherwise it is a very nice build!!

Very classy ride this is. And classic too. Those cranks do throw the look a bit off but hey, to each their own. :)

Props for the pink Chris King headset! It makes the frame stand out even more.

You could always do what this guy did-

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=96674&hilit=leopard+trek&start=45

Starts page 4 about halfway down- results made me almost buy a 3d just so I could do that to it, I think the result is awesome

Nice bike, love the paint scheme, but also agree with Giant Man that the clincher would be a matching fork.

Thomson is the perfect cockpit for this steed. Bravo.

I love the color, very bold. What made you skip the IF steel fork? I just got a Crown Jewel as well and opted for the steel fork. I thought if I didn't like it I could just set it aside and run one of my carbon forks instead. Turns out their steel forks are superb. I hope you love this bike as much as I love mine. My Crown Jewel is the best bike I've ever owned.

I like it...a solid reliable bike with plenty of scope for upgrades or not...

How do you like the Tornova bars?
Can you get the hoods nice and close?
