Yep, really really nice. And Kudos to the way they did the lettering. Doesn't take away from that gorgeous paint job.

Clean build and a very nice “surprise me” scheme.

Enjoy!

SV - 2018 Surprise Me - the wait is OVER

I’ve seen some Surprise Me paint jobs that made me scratch my head. Yours came out good. I wouldn’t choose a SM job with them, but that’s just me. I would on a Peg, though.

I find that a funny description. Not sure how it plays into how I described what I like when I ordered the bike.

It sits in my basement, yet to be ridden, we have about 25 cm of snow and serious wind chill in effect here for the next week or so. Hopefully the spring thaw comes soon and the road salt gets washed away. Until that happens, it will be the track and my moots.

I hope the weather clears up for you soon. We need to hear riding reports on that SV.

can't wait to give them, and while I do not ride as much or as often as many of you, do not worry, it will not be a garage queen, I plan on riding it on dirt roads, paths and everywhere I want to go that is reasonable on 28s.

The print I mentioned above. It's hard to get a good picture of it but you get the point.
That is a paint scheme that will stand the test of time. Awesome.

Since it is sitting can you take a close up of the TT paint so we can see the line work / fade from dark to light.

That's a heck of a bike. Pretty and well proportioned. What's your seat height?

79cm

Tip of saddle to bars is about 59

Drop is about 10.

The visual balance is nice. Hope it rides as nice as it looks.
