Thanks. I used to race RC model cars (TB Evo4& Xray T1R) so had some decals left over.
What size frame is that and how tall are you?

Nice looking bike there jamsop 8)
Can I just ask a couple of questions?
How do you find the seat for comfort, & for strength ie. is it flimsy or tough as nails? and is it a pain to keep white?
Also how do find the carbon Race Face handle bars? Love the look of them & the weight but worried about the whole carbon snapping thing!
I ask these questions as they are both on my shortlist for my custom bike build (in sig) and would love some real world feedback.
A white one :shock:
At first I found the saddle very hard and firm but for long distance riding I actually find it better firm.
It really depends on your riding style and the shape of your backside... it may fit me but it might not you!
The shell does flex but I think it's part of the design. Overall the fit and finish is one of the best I've seen with a real leather cover. Like Italian shoes!
However, I had to change the seatpost as the rails on the Selle Italia was not completely round. So I had problems with my old seat post (Raceface evolve XC) holding the rails. Since the raceface clamps sideways if you get what I mean. Very difficult to explain....But that gave me the excuse to get the Thomson and Wow love the quality......
Oh and I find white fairly easy to keep clean.. a wipe after every ride and some leather cream every few months. Although the perforated holes do seem to attract mud.
Not much to say about the bars but they look bling. Like all carbon components you have to take care of them. Just make sure you have a torque wrench to fit your levers to the bar.
Hope this helps........
