    Love those frame colors. Angry Catfish in Minneapolis just built a good looking one...

    This confirms the rim/frame combo I saw 10/5 at Freeze Thaw was not an anomaly of color matching. They just don't match.

    okay, i was holding my comment...
    But now that you have swapped the seatpost, stem and spacers for black ones, i can truly and honestly say that that is one beautiful bike !! :thumbsup:
    Probably the best looking Muk i have seen.

    weird... looks like there is a slight variation in colors for the graphics? Some posted here have the salsa logo in black and some in white. Hvnfun did you build two different frames?

    I think it's the flash on the camera. The "Salsa" is black, it must be reflective??? That's from someone holding the frame in his hands.

    The Salsa logo on the downtube is dark grey in daylight, but is reflectorized, so it'll appear light when using a flash.

    Other than the purple cable housings, I like the Black/Purple combo....nice work!
