Look's great Konaglider, your plans for it sound fine :wink:

This is on here already but here it's back as a single speed with Magura's :) , not normaly a user of bar ends but someone mentioned needing leverage with a single speed and after climbing a few hills felt they were necessary so went for red X-lite ski bends, blue flavoured wheels are only temporary as they are intended for my Manitou FS, getting some red Odessey sharkbites for it soon and may go for a red saddle.

Rides fantastic though, dont know what the weight it but it feels pretty damned light :D

Lovin' the E8 and the Clockwork. 8)

That means we now have an Elite, E3, E4 and E8. That's a full set as far as I know. It's odd though that the E4 was available in orange when all the others have only been silver.

Would be great to get a photo of a load of these bikes together one day. 8)


E2 anybody...

could do with a little tlc after been sat in my garage for about 10 years...

That's come together very nicely Mr. Toad, and quickly too! Puts me to shame, I can't seem to find the time.
How have you got on with the Onza Porc's? got a set waiting to go on mine, eventually :roll:
