These two guys know and ride with each other. They ordered their respective frames a few days apart.
Both tubesets are my standard True Temper OX mix with Columbus chainstays.The forks are nearly identical. The frames are similar sized with the orange one just taste smaller. The colors , however are not the same by a long shot. The black has large metal flakes, kind of like a bowling ball-neat look. The orange is pretty bright and has the rare gold/black decals.
I'm sure that these guys will battle on the race course and on the trails....should be pretty cool.
