It's all just a filter affect. 

I like what you did with that picture, nice work!  Did you desaturate all but red tones?

Lot of cool stuff happening on that bike!  Singlespeed?  And digging that underseat dropper lever!

Nothing wrong with that one either, looks like a lot of parts transferred over and that's a sweet bike!

Thanks, this is my one bike for all so parts swapped over, always evolving and upgrading. The latest is a set of Raceface Turbine wheels on the Moxie.

Been single speed for 4 years straight now (well, on and off for the last 30 yrs). The lever dropper post is because I have a tag-along for my son so need to swap it out sometimes.

The bikes are quite similar but just went to a slightly longer frame and steel frame for change.

A cheaper alternative would be the superstar components slackerizer headset. It should be model T7-2, based on the details you posted:

When I checked last summer, superstar's shipping/tax/duty charges to Canada killed any savings... something to the tune of $100+ cdn for shipping costs alone. I ended going with Works

Works Component's standard shipping is FEDEX which is $$ plus you get dinged with a hefty brokerage fee plus the taxes you owe. They will ship Royal Mail/Canada Post if you hassle them, but they mention having lost many packages and not covering any such loses which doesn't lend you a ton of confidence in that method.

Not sure why the issues as I have rec'd many USPS and Royal Mail shipments from other companies without issue.

Works charge 20£ for FedEx shipping to Canada.  It's not too difficult to inform FedEx ahead of time that you will clear customs yourself for the package to avoid any brokerage/handling fees.

Just played around in Superstar's site... £300 for UPS shipping (only option) on a £50 headset to Canada

If you're in Metro Van get and ordering out of the states get it shipped to Point Roberts or Blaine and depending who you order from you'll get free shipping saving you some bucks. Time it with a fill up of gas and you can save yourself another $15-30. Between the two it's worth the drive down. Don't want to deal with line ups? Set up an account at InOut Parcel where they have secured storage lockers you can pick up from 24hrs a day for as little as a $3.75 charge.

I'll add tho, check with pricing from your LBS, depending on the difference throw them the business instead. I'd say more than 50% the pricing is close enough at the LBS that I'll just go that route. The gas things makes a big difference for me tho as I have a 140L tank

Heathen, or anyone else for that matter.  

If you're in Vancouver I'd be interested in splitting shipping costs from Works with you.  I have a 2016 Samurai I'd like to put an angle set in.

Already pulled the trigger on mine.
