Unfortunately some of the yellow decals on the frame can be wiped off with a wet cloth :p

Stunning looking bike and a great build.

Cracking photography also, buy do you have any more completed bike images where the aperture isn't wide with all the bokeh?

Really interested in one of these and would love to see more of the bike, especially side view of of the whole bike and the area around where the wheel is close to the frame (front and rear), so I cans we tyre fit?

With the 30mm wide LB wheels, what do the 25mm GP5000 measure in width?

Thanks!

Haven't taken more complete photos yet, still in the adjustment phase. Will measure the tires tonight.

The tires measure 29.2mm at 7 bar pressure, the rims 30.7mm.

At the moment I am struggling with a sliding fork expander. Hopefully a generous amount of carbon paste will fix it.

Brilliant, thanks. It's nice to see the 25mm stretch out well on a 30mm mm wide rim.

Liking the new pictures.

Maybe the paste will fix it, fingers crossed. Any other you can try instead?
