That said, bikes are meant to be bought and sold, I get it ;)

It was mostly a holdover while I got my Rock Lobster refinished. I'll get another one when I have room for multiple straight up road bikes.

Didn't see this when I was building my Mr. Pink but I wish I had! All the validation I needed on component/finishing color choices. Ace build man! I'm sure it rips.

Needs a quill stem IMO.

Well, it has a threadless fork, so that would be a total hack job IMO.

I think the threadless set up is great - really want a threadless-compatible MX-L myself! - but I would consider a -17 degree stem, taking the plunge on cutting the steerer down, and debadging the seatpost. I've got this bad boy in mind: https://www.reddit.com/r/Bikeporn/comme...

Definitely searching for a different seatpost without black logos or head, probably a DA SP-7410 or Sim-Works Beatnik.

17 degree stems don't look amazing when the HTA is steeper than 73 degrees, but I'll keep my eye out for one to try.
