bigquotesDude I feel, I have an old school specialized rockhopper that’s rocking pink on top to a purple fade on the bottom.

I love it. I don’t know why shouty colors work so well on bikes but I enjoy the hell out of it.

It kind of sucks though because the stealth thing is becoming a bigger. Thing

I agree on how stealthy has become the ‘in thing’

Here’s a link to a specialized just like the one in my rafters… https://bikeindex.org/bikes/58681

Granted mine isn’t loaded the to brim like that one but it did come with a radio

Wow, gorgeous! Would love to take it out for a boot. No idea if/how well it works but it looks really cool. Gravel bike with leaf spring?

Thank you @dump and @ scotteh.
Not a gravel frame, it's a single speed commuter. The roads are a bit bad around here!

What can you tell us about the shock?

@psynide, dude, that frame is epic. Absolutely lovely, color is so close to my favorite bike color(thank you Bianchi for that)

Super cool. Tell us about the shock. Is there damping? Just a slider?

Thanks everyone. The shock as just an elastomer bumper. Since the travel is so minimal, I did not try to get too techy! Also, the frame was built with a specific budget in mind Smile

Whoa that's super nice! The softail design with the bianchi celeste paint job gives it a cool Paris-Roubaix vibe. I bet it rides like a dream esp with the Spirit tubing! Are you building a fork as well?
