    Fetish Cycles position build up complete..

    ..just finished building this up this week.

    53cm Fetich Cycles Position frame
    Fetish carbon fork
    gold Velocity Deep V's/Formula hubs from Iro
    gold Shimano 600 crankset
    Fetish carbon stem
    Fetish carbon seatpost
    gold Izumi chain
    Cane Creek integrated headset
    gold Hope seatpost clamp

    I guess those are the 'highlights'.. i went a little nuts with the carbon, but i love it
    all of the stickers are gone now except for the head tube and downtube

    saddle and bars are temporary

    I must say I'm not much a fan of the orange/gold cranks. Looks good though!

    thanks guys... I wish the cranks were more 'gold' as well... but this was the best I coudl do.. it 'blends' ok I guess...

    and I knew the truck woudl cause some controversy...so I threw it in there.. dotn worry, its typically in the garage 5 days out of the week

    Wow thats beautiful. If you don't mind, what did that set u back?

    I have an F150 4x4 that gets 13-16mpg. It's sits most of the time, when used there are no good alternatives. Motorized transport usually consists of Ninja 250 (55mpg) and mini cooper (30mpg).

    I dig it. Are you saying that complete build cost you $600? If yes, will you be my financial planner?

    Yay for removing the stickers... throw some grips on the baby and she looks ready to shine.

    Coolness. Those gold V's are sick.

    Today I just received the 56cm Fetish Inizio that I bought for The Boyfriend, going to build it up with mid-grade Campy. Glad to see I'm not the only one buying these things. He'll probably have me remove some of the decals, though, after he saw me desticker my Steamroller the other night.

    Oh, and how do you like the headset? I'm assuming you're using the IS-2 on it... New things like that always make me uncomfortable. I'm a stodgy old fool who wasn't sold on threadless headsets until I tried one, though.

    Looks nice. The front hub looks like it's resting in front of the fork. Weird placements of the ends.

    I like the gold on black, but i agree that some black cranks would round it out well.
