I noticed the stem too - I'm putting it down to camera phone and overcast sky on alloy. It can't possibly be actually pink...

Sounds like you're coming down with a cold, Waz. I recommend at least 3 days, um, bed rest...

I have a mid-name 653 thinking about the same colour. Looking for Endeavour decals

Looking forward to final build photos

Ha! I'm avoiding the yellow specifically on account of the gefsco!

Spray job. $240 with 5 coats of clear. The only imperfections are around the BB where he thinned the cover to keep the Reynolds panto visible.

Cyclomondo is your friend.

The build will take some time as I have gathered most gear however now that I have seen the frame in the flesh/steel :wink: I am tossing up colour schemes between 'bumblebee', honey, white or grey. I will start assembly and see how it feels as I get it together.
I'm off to 'The Shed' to find out the best way to degrease shifters. Only opened them from the transport packaging last night and found that there was plenty of muck in the mechs.
Secondly, any real special place for Hudz or just the usual places?

Cheers

I've been told spraying degreaser in there (supercheap aerosol) works well - I'm yet to try on my 105s though.

you could go any way with that yellow.
fan of the eels? add blue, and winfield 25's
patriotic? add green, and a boxing kangaroo
like junk food? add red, and a styrofoam burger box

if i was lucky enough to have a yellow frame like that, i'd keep it simple with black tyres, white tape and saddle, maybe yellow cable outers, and silver components/wheelset.
