    It has a lot of personality...

    That red is really bright. How come you cut the shifter housing so long? It looks a little excessive.

    I like it, @RT. Isn't this your second build with that frame?

    I can dig it. The red keeps the bike from being a boring "all black" bike.

    Does the top tube have a tumor on the bottom of it?? It's cute. I wouldn't call it hot, though no.

    Some mango tape would be go really well with that bike, instead of the blue.

    Too much orange. The blue is matched to our team kits (as is the orange).

    It's mine, but not in my possession yet, so I can't take my own pictures. I'll have it two weeks from today...

    Well that sucks. It shouldn't have been upside down....I really wasn't ready to let the world know that my bike can defy gravity. I was going to wait until my first race to show off that feature.

    It is. The first build suffered RD hanger snappage, resulting in much damage to components and frame. Had it blasted and powdered. @slowjamz, I've done all black before, in fact, this frame used to wear all black. Red is a change. They were out of black cages, so oddly, that is what turned the build to red.
