    I'll take the seat post please. DM incoming.

    Painted. Possibly the headbadge as well, depending on if he's able to save it in removal.

    I'm being incredibly restrained and not taking it out of its packaging. I want to get it off to be repainted before I do anything like that, or I'll just be too tempted to start building it.

    How's a quick render of how it might look post paint for you?

    I didn't actually realise how soon I'd have it! Only arrived today.

    As much as possible really. Almost everything except the saddle. Will have to look at the cranks, and replace the bottom bracket. Might match it up with the CK headset I got from Crust to go with it.

    I'm not even that keen on the green, but yeah, the yellow definitely not. Decals will be repainted with something more in keeping with the paint job. The font and palm trees will be staying though, for sure. Quite like to add something like the 'what happened to all the mermaids' they have on the chain stays of the older models.

    Glad it's not just me!

    Huge fan of yours. Love the clean lines and more classic look.

    This will replace a Midnight Special, and I'm probably looking at something along the black galaxy lines for the paint. Basically wanted the Evasion paint job, but with the Lite's spec.

    Lusted after an Evasion Lite for years and found one both in stock in my size and in a position to get it shipped over via a friend without getting stung massively.

    First job, paint. Off to Quintessential Customs at some point soon. Might be frowned upon but the banana yellow is not my cup of tea.

    Likewise! If it makes you feel better, I missed the second batch of pizza and didn't hang around for the third lot.

    I actually prefer Middleburn to those, slightly controversially. The shape of the cranks and slightly cleaner look just does it for me.

    Perhaps the apensiest option is the Rene Herse crankset, which Sven Cycles might have in stock at the moment and would definitely do that setup.

    Putting two and two together fellow Clever Mike fan. I remember reading this thread first time around and really enjoying it.

    What a lovely bike. Love Fairlights, but also, more specifically, the all silver cockpit setup. Particularly having seen it in person.

    Middleburn for the win. I would say they're the best looking cranks around.

    I'm woefully unfit, but for me 46/30 isn't quite as spinny as I'd like. 42/26 would be ideal. Particularly for anything off road and/or loaded.
