Looks very nice. I like where it is made (My Home Province). My new bike has arrived at the Post office, so I will pick it up tomorrow and post some photos. This process has taken close to two months to complete.

Cheers!

Is it just me, or does this bike remind anyone else of the "General Lee" bike that was recently posted in the forums?

No, it's you. On this bike, the cables, headset, shock and parts of the tires aren't covered in overspray.

The General Lee deserves a forum of it's own.

I really like it, looks to have a very solid frame and good geometry wich are the key to me, components can always be changed the frame to a lesser extent cannot.

Everybody loves the orange, I think its ok and looks great on that bike but im always going to be a black man (not literly)
