thank god im not the only one thinking that.

love the colour but where does your cable come out of??

goes in the frame where u can see by the headtube and back out on top of the seat tube just before the booster.

Cheers for the comments guys.

Quick question - how do you route your brake lines? Remove the main hose and bleed after reconnecting? Small hole to small hole can't be easy so I'm assuming you've done something sensible!

i dissconnected the cable from the lever and cut off the olive too. poked that in the bottom end of the frame, when you can see the hose by the top hole i used something pointy (a sharp pencil etc) to stick in the end of the hose to guid it out the frame which pushing the cable through at the bottom end.

Its suprisingly easy.

I bet it looks different in the flesh!

it does, a bit brighter, the pictures have dulled it down a bit. you may see it at the comp if my hub returns in time.

I got it done at a company in Gosport called plasticoat. It cost £30 for frame and forks (would have been less if the forks were the same colour). To do it you just turn up and walk in, it will cost a fortune if you ring them and ask about it.
