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-

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

That fork needs to be colour matched imo ....

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?
