I love Stanton's frames, but I can't stand their stickers on the bars/downtube/seat tube etc. Makes a beautiful frame look like a cheap POS.

I’m a big Stanton fan but totally agree about the down tube decals...spoils a lot of their frames IMO, however just FYI the decals are custom with multiple options so the purchaser of this frame may well have spec’s that decal.

Understood, and I get that it's all purely preference. But to me, in the context of this thread, they detract so much from some of the most beautiful frames on the market. Every Stanton HT is pretty much worthy of getting posted here.

Yes and no, you could still have a great, well made beautiful frame, and hang complete shit on it, uncut cables and odd dropper/fork combos

The OG hope brakes are a cool choice! Not a fan of the gear + dropper cables though, grips are a bit much as well

This^. Someone said a while ago that every Chromag should get an automatic pass, not long afterwards one was posted that disproved the theory.

I'm definitely a less is more guy. I reckon Hope colour hubs is enough for any raw sorta frame.

I'm gonna say it - tan walls look good on that bike. De-sticker the Marzocchi, trim down the steerer and it's in contention.

I'm kinda nit picking..but a all black cassette would look smashing vs the black and silver.

Can't say I disagree with you, fair point. Something about that one just looks right. Does something for me.

Does anyone know if the lower seat stays are just on smaller Pace frames, or is it a design change?

Moxie needs to lose the pedals and tidy up the cables.
