    Nice except that it's an AM not an AFR. It's on the AM database on here and IIRC it has a strengthened downtube so that it can be used with 180mm forks and still be warrantied. The custom tube didn't seem to add much weight either, I thnk maybe 100g or so?

    Oops - I see now. Which begs the question, if one want's to run a 180mm fork why not get an AFR in the first place...? Don't imagine there would be much weight saving between that custom AM and an AFR with that build, or at least not so much that it'd make much difference in real life use?

    Still nice looking bike though.

    i was initially stunned by the ano orange / green / red, but must say that the red now looks best.
    the orange looks like metallic p1$$......

    Can't imagine why you would run the bike with no bash ring on.
