Probably the ONLY yellow bike I like...in the universe. And I officially hate you for those forks. Megawesome.

Ian how big are the holes in that rad guard? They look a bit large no?

The endurance crowd on PB turned me onto the stuff that they use if you're interested. It's 1/4 inch welded 304 stainless. Not cheap, but supposedly the most durable for the given application. Looks pretty nifty too. Although it comes in a big roll and is a pain to cut. I looked like I did battle with a herd of angry velociraptors when I was done with it.

Be interested to see it for sure, although the holes in my stuff aren't as big as perhaps they look, I think it's because they are a bit wider than high :dunno

Oh and just in case we'll quote it again.

Well spotted Eli, took it form a pretty polished finished it came with, down to a brushed look, think it looks more appropriate now.
Loving the brushed raw look. Very nice touch. :bow

I liked it better when it was shiny but I suppose you would have to see the bike live to make a better judgement :fact

Better hurry, Ian. You need to have it done before COTA. Might have to ride in the back with your bike to get it all done in time. :crash
