Mate I don't think you can, otherwise I would have gone for the Orange... : ) You do get a blue one if you go the Gucci Build.

Another Spitfire

I think this picture should belongs to here too, the ever famous WWII fighter plane - Spitfire

My all time war plane (WWII), and i think the banshee spitfire name is well selected.

Looks like I'm headed in the wrong direction with my build (assuming I ever get the frame) with all the Skittles colors going on here. Mine will end up looking like a primer gray Camero sitting in some butt rockers yard waiting for a new tranny.
a couple cans of rattle spray can take care of that...
I'm not very fond of the drop'nzone spitfire; it kind of makes me want to barf.

Admittedly I don't like the Green but the rest is good.

Agreed; the O.P.'s spitty looks great.
Mine is going to be so black and white boring compared to all of the spitty pics I've seen.
I'm pretty stoked that it won't be so boring to ride though.

a simple build..

* Lyrik Coil
* EX823\Hope pro II\Maxxis advantage front + minion rear
* Banshee headset
* Gravity 777 bar :thumbsup:
* SRAM gears
* Avid Brakes
* temporary post and stem...

total weight is about 15K (33lb) but it feels much lighter when hammering the pedals.
action pics will follow... i guess a chain-guide will be added soon..

Did you get the Lyrik for the Spitfire? I have a Lyrik now, but I'm planning to ditch it and get a Revelation Team before my Spitfire arrive. You got me wondering if I should keep it and wait allthough I feel 127mm rear and 160mm front is a weird combination.. The Lyrik coil u-turn is HEAVY.

same here. I think the only colorful things on mine are going to be the gold bolt on my 20th anniversary XO mech, and the gold bits on my joplin. everything else is black, grey, or silver.

and a little OT, did you end up getting your frame in a timely manner? or are you waiting 3 weeks like the rest of us schlubs?

Interpidity, hold onto the lyrik and try it out. worst that happens is you decide you want a revelation. best, you keep the lyrik and save some money

I had the Lyrik before, and although i also thought about replacing it, I decided to try it first.

The revelation is great and no-doubt better\lighter riders will benefit its light-weight and travel.. but for me, the stiffer Lyrik is more confidence inspiring (and IMHO looks better in compliance with the frame's tubes).

anyway, i think you should try before you buy ;)
