Like the photo composition. Detailed, but without being obsessive...

Gorgeous bike! And in my favorite colour (although I prefer royal blue)! Excellent contrast between the frame and its components. :thumbup: :mrgreen:

Definitely stands out among all the stealth and red/white/black-racy looking bikes. Well done. Hope your kit matches :-)

A nice build indeed! But you know what I like most about your thread... is your descrption of your goals with the bike and how you changed plans midcourse. Then you listed parts, etc., and explained briefly WHY you chose them. Maybe it was for looks, maybe function, but I don't think you ever sacrificed function for looks. In other words, you knew what you were after, and chose accordingly as opposed to just throwing a bunch of money at a project and buying whatever bling part is the current rage. And the photos are great. All round great job.
