The old team color does it for me: the green, white + pink one, can't remember what that ones called but I have got the matching jersey in the 'box 'o' bits. Looked like a cartoon bike (bit like the Klein green, white, magenta fade attitude, mmmmm)

Its got a new rear mech (blue proshift) and blue Graftons front and back (as opposed to the green pauls it has on the front in that pic)

Oh yeah - and pewter ActionTec rings now.

And a blue ringle seat QR.


I suppose you know best, although personally I think the frame should rule and introducing other blue bits just distracts attention away from it - and the frame in itself is quite superb obviously.

I was just interested though to know the argument in favour of a black chainstay protector? Not that I've tried a clear one myself though - don't they work?

The blue bits build are a reflection on the Yo that Hemming used to ride for MBUK. Probably the aquafade that most people remember back in the day.

Not all of it was blue (indeed he used to ride with Mag21's with some silver stuff instead) but remember in the day they did not have access to all that kit if sponsors were providing free stuff...

The black velcro protector is removable, washable and doesnt muck up the frame.

darren used to attend most of the south west series when I was living in plymouth. his lavender yo eddy with green parts & matching shockabilly (also with green parts) were both very cool steeds. i've got pics, also of his old AMP back end billy.
