Wow. What was your method of stripping the paint off the carbon fork? I might be in a similar process.

I used a new sharp razer blade at a slight angle to peal the paint off. This works fast an ez, then clean it up and smooth it out with fine sandpaper.

What stem is that? The painted to match one?
I only know of Extralite having a -12 degree angle.

No photos yet but I did remove the specialized stem as it looked a bit bulky and installed a FSA SL-K -12 stem.

Someday I hope to have an SV in this color. The mint color reminds me of the Kelly Bikes Toothpaste. Nice build too, enjoy it!
