DeAnima make nice bikes! It's a shame they don't advertise themselves very well with that logo design on the downtube...

I prefer it to garish big letters all down the down tube. But whatever floats your boat.

I think he's suggesting that its illegible so other people can't see what brand the bike is rather than it looking bad (which it definitely doesn't because mother fricker it is goooooood)

Agree, nice looking bike but until the name was mentioned a couple of posts ago I hadn't a clue who manufactured the frame!

I think you may have a point on this one as the colours are less sharply contrasted.

How’s this look?

First proper outing off-road.

Need to sort some tubeless tyres out as pressures that can be used are limited by current ones.

Any suggestions for muddy conditions? Limit on 700c tyres is 35c.

Vittoria Terreno Wet TNT in 33c, I've got a set and they're fantastic, far more of an all rounder than the Wet name suggests, go up tubeless really easily and roll fast on non-mud too.

Beautiful! Curious what size rear tires (650b & 700c) can fit on there? How long does it take from order to delivery?
