Nice bike, my GF has the same frame. Don't like the fake wheels though. Strip off the decals!

Yes, I am looking to those two weeks we typically get in August too. But that's a nice bike.

Haha, thanks mate
Spent an hour last night peeling off the wheels labels! I managed to buy the bike extremely cheap as standard and have enjoyed upgrading the parts to the best of my knowledge currently :thumbup: However, this is a dangerous place to learn from and seeing exotica doesn't help! I'm pleased as its my first bike and just want to enjoy it now..

Question about the steerer top cap…

Isn't it supposed to be above the stem?

dont think so mate. Researched it and a flush fitment is for the win. Not keen on top caps looking proud at all!
