Back from france wish my new Stuff
Hey guys, I bought my frame before I left to go away for a few days on a History trip and was itching to get home, the 12 hour trip on the bus on the way back almost killed me, so i rushed in, dumped my bags and opened up the two parcels that had arrived for me, my new PLanet X hammerhead 777 Frame and my FSA orbit XL headset...
Put the bits on it last night, including an old seatpost i stole off one of my old bikes, a saddle, the seat clamp, and the back brake..
I love the whole thing, take a look
Next will be a pike fork next week, although I havent decided what color yet, black or silver, help me out will you
Wow, I thought kona Stuff, because you capitalized the S in stuff. Nice frame, white rocks, and all the colours just seem to "fit".
As for the pike, I think black wouldn't go too well with the white(but black is a strong colour/shade (whatever, I don't know the difference, someone school me). Silver would probably be better.

Looks like a great frame...that top tube gusset is just ill.
What color are your rims and spokes? Bars and stem? That will play into which color fork will look better.
Hmm... Will most probably be black rims with black or silver spokes and most probably black spokes, the cranks will be black, everything like that will be black, except the saddle which is like a grey.
Looking more at a silver fork now, but I can get an SL version on Ebay, or a team version for £275, which would you suggest, seeing as im working on a budget, Apparently the SL doesnt have adjustable preload, is there any strength difference between the 3 versions?
Probably, some material diferences, as well as internal structure.
