Great looking bike, Paul is one of my favorite builders and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

Btw, love those rims!

Cheers,
KP

Thanks KP!

I have to say, these are the easiest tire rim combo i have ever set up. pop pop, no drama.

Where did you find the pink PW seatpost collar? And how well does it match the WI headset, which is more of a magenta than pink IMO ?

Still waiting on a silca frame pump and a HB bag, but other than that - it's done unless i can find a set of pink PW skewers!

AVT bike had one in stock. I would say it's reasonably close, i can try and get a better photo today in the sunlight for you.

one thing to remember though, at least as far as my past experience tells me, ano colors that really pop like pink are subject to sun fade and will change over time, probably at different rates, so what may match perfectly today might not next year if out in the sun a lot.

See, you could move to upstate NY and never have to worry about that sun issue.

I've heard you get a little sunshine if you know where to park your lawn chair

I have ridden this local short climb countless times, mostly on road bikes.

it is like cheating on fat rubber.

Really nice frame/bike! Do you feel the knobs on the rear when on paved sections?
