Originally the plan was to have the links custom painted in yellow, and add on the yellow Deemax wheels. When the frame showed up and we saw how cool it was with the silver links, we just had to go with it. Made a few minor adjustments in the spec, and came up with this. Not too shabby.
(We were too excited to ride it to bother with cutting down the brake lines. Don't worry, we will get to it)
