Hi well its taken me at least a year on this... Its my best work to date just need some overview and a help as to what peddles I should bestow on my rig.. Not sure of weight until i get it to my LBS but Im guessing sub 7kg.

It started Life as a scrappy paint LX-10 Blue one, but paint was well gone...I have now (By hand ) released the power of carbon.......... In the flesh its truly matte and jaw dropping I hope my iphone pics do it justice....

Let me know what you think...

very nice...some questions...you just sanded/removed old paint and thats it, or did you apply some matte clear coat?

Looks very cool, the clean lines of that traditional geo c40 and the simple graphics are pleasing to the eye.

Congrats

Looks nice, but it would benefit from some better pictures. Take it outside and take pictures on a cloudy day.

I think it would look better without the red hudz.

(Pictures can be seen by right-clicking on the red x's, scroll down to properties, and then cut and paste the Photobucket URL at the top or your browser.)
