Very nice bike. Lovely color.
I would rate it 8,5/10. Could have been 9/10 if you had matched the Mavic decals on the tires and rims.

Great bike.
Gum wall tires would look great, as well as ensuring the lever of the front skewer is on the left hand side...

WOW!! Definitely one of my favourite bikes on the forum. I love the colour! Kind of reminds me of my MTB (matte olive). Such a cool looking frame. I really like the matched seatpost too!

Great to see a totally different colour scheme. It looks awesome. I love bikes in unusual colours that look better than one would expect.

This has got to be the first glamor shot I've seen with the chain midway between the big and small ring! Tremendous build!

Great looking bike :thumbup:

Notice you're in Perth too - do you race / are you part of a club / do you regularly take part in some of the group rides around town?

Thanks for the feedback guys on the bike....and the ute. The amarok is great!
I do have some Vittoria gumwalls in reserve, might put them on in a few months.

@ michel2- Didnt do a weigh in before the build...ashamed to admit.
@ tvillumsen- The kit does look cool but the price is crazy! Plus i couldnt bring myself to wear it all together...A1 tosser
@ Roel W- Hadnt notice the mavic labels not lined cant be to perfect :-)
@ CrimsonKarter21- Great pickup. The chain came off when fitting the mavics
@ g_doraz- I am in Applecross. I dont ride in a group, i'm bit of a lone ranger. I normally go out early on the weekends and do a lap of the river (around 50km), maybe two if i'm feeling good. If you want to catchup for a ride pm me and we can organise something.

Hopefully my stem will arrive next week and i can take it for its maiden voyage. I will update then.

Ok, that's nice. Nothing wrong with 'NATO' Green, either. It served it's purpose...

:P Nice bike
I have seen a couple of those here in California and they look great in person.
Do not do gum tires!!!
54s seems a bit big for you, but I will wait for the final setting.
I have a black one and I love it. Enjoy!!

I'm 188cm and i the 54s is a great fit. I'm with you on the gum walls. I have had a pair on my M10 and they looked fine but the tan colour soon got black gunk on it from the road and the brake pads.

Got a letter saying i have a parcel to collect from the postoffice....fingers crossed its my stem and i can take it for a real ride on the weekend. :lol:
