I set the camera down after that, as the construction job was still ongoing... I'll try to get some shots of it in an outdoor environment soon.

I bet those v-brake bosses are threaded, you could take those off to smooth out the look. I wouldn't of course if they are welded however.

I love the color though, and that wheel does seem pretty sweet.

We have the same taste in bikes. I ordered one about 3 weeks ago, and hopefully will be picking it up at the end of july. I've already been surfing the sites for some upgrades. Let me know how you like it on the trails. I could only test ride an 04 model at the shop where I purchased mine.
