I like the gold and black too, maybe all gold would be a bit to much imo.

Should be a beast when it's all built up Very Happy

Notice the frame is now blank, slightest knock and it chipped so took it back to bare carbon



















Maidon ride was a great success, it flys along so light and nimble too

Nice build mate. I agree about the paint having to come off. Can you not stick the gold decals back on?

Also just weighed it, it comes in dead on 12kilo. (26.4) Very Happy A feather weight it is not, but still not bad as it was built as a bit of a hard core hardtail and lightness wasnt priority.

Thanks for the kind words. Im sure your build will look equally as good as you say mine is. You will love it they are great frames. Good luck with your build put some pics up as you build.
