Solitude second design

Three weeks ago, Alex sent me the second draft of his design for my Solitude Cycles frame. He again sent two pictures, which show how the bike will compare with my Kona and On-One bikes. The drops look to be a little higher than in the first design, and almost exactly match the position on the grips on my Kona. Riding on the hoods, I'll be as high as the On-One but a bit more stretched out, I think.

Colour-wise, I'm probably going to go for Caspian Blue, as used by Triumph on their Thruxton 900. With the black parts and silver decals, that should look sweet.

I should be getting the third (and final) draft soon, but I told Alex not to hurry and to ride his bike instead.
