So my frame came today. I had a few minutes to snap a couple pics. The frame weighed 1260 grams as pictured. The fork came in @ 391 grams. I was sick and tired of black and white frames, that's what I've had for the last five years. Its SUPER bright orange. They list it as Neon. Pictures do not do it justice. It's a nice change.
I dropped it off at the shop to reinstall the bottom bracket with loctite instead of the grease that's in it now. Will get more pics as I go.
Going with full E-tap build.

Boyd singles with Veloflex tubs. Ordering some new alloy rims with CK mango hubs. Not sure on the hoops yet..
Jagwire cables for the brakes, never used these. Hope they work out.

Nice! Can never go wrong with orange. I agree about bringing back colorful frames. The black on black look is starting to get played out.

That’s a great color. I’ve been eyeing the purple disc frame.
