    Pink is the new Ghey. No, wait, the old ghey.

    Stick with silver. Silver and blue.

    Nice color. the Flux Rocks.

    Silve and Pink would be nice

    Only a man that still sports speedos could love Pink and Blue

    Its like the old saying blue and green should not be seen, but now they cool kids together or so I'm told!

    Pink is so 07, still its a good cause and I'm for the pink cause, I have a pink headcap on the 5Spot I use on special days of rememberance and stuff!

    Pink and Black works

    I'm finding that I"m the only one sporting a true brief style speedo at the local lap pool now. All the dudes are wearing "Jammers" now for lap swimming. I refuse to give in. If all the Euro's can wear Speedos to our beaches, they must still be HOT!

    It lives!

    I know we need the pictures - and graphs - so I will start a new thread once the pics are done but wow is this thing light 23.7lb with pedals

    I'd say 22lbs would be possible for race use, maxxis flylight, straight bars, grip shift, SLR saddle, XTR cassette, etc, etc but I've mixed and matched to suit my needs and riding without going for fragile race only parts. Pics to follow in new thread soon...

    Sweet. You will soo love silver. Both my bikes have silver as the secondary color (with some black; simply unavoidable) and I never tire looking at them or ever think they look "dated."

    Have fun with the build!

    Well here it is in all it's glory after I managed to dodge the rain that's been coming down for the last three days for a quiky photo shoot.



    I will post the details in a new thread and in the Flux sticky

    Sweet! That's a veeery nice looking Flux! Me likey the white fork.

    Some friendly advice - Remove the stickers from the rims and shorten the cables and brake lines for a cleaner look.
