That's exactly how you feel. After that first scratch with the knife it's like "*f##k*, why did I even get this idea..."
Sounds good about the Transfer!
So, lots of things to happening!
Fork is almost finished, just a little more polishing and the Hopp Carbon topcap/lever. I also managed to polish the air can and Evol sleeve on the rear shock. The coating was super hard so it was a lot of work to get through, but really happy with the result. Next up is the linkage plates.
Also got the tires, Schwalbe Nobby Nic 29x2,6" that came in at a pretty good 881+925g. Big variations as always though...
Lastly a little preview on the bike on wheels, gonna look good when finished!
