Good bangs for the buck on this one.

I find the WW stealth look spectacularly dull tbh and it's been done a million times before, but there's a reason for that ... it's light and can be cheap.

The red accents, glossy lettering with ample negative space, and world champion stripes sets this bike apart from the standard black on black + white bartape/saddle look. Hope it rides as well as it looks. :thumbup:

It does a bit yes. It looks like good bang for buck. But stealth has been done a billiion times and is getting very boring indeed.

my thoughts exactly! looks better as some of the much more expensive brand name company"s framesets

Do you have a cost of the initial build? Not sure what is considered budget :)

Can't speak for the the OP but I did build up something similar.... you can do some nice things for under 3K these days. Under 2.5K if you are resourceful I reckon...

Nice. I have a similar build. I found that the kcnc topper will work with some creative routing and sanding. But your solution looks cleaner.
