Ohhhhh, Guinness head cream, fabulous colour if I may say so? (I also like the original orange/mango colour too mind).

Oh, and I have the exact same stereo as you. Good taste all round.


Those Hope hubs look minty fresh, & I like the 'skittles' style chain ring bolts.
Personally, I do love the original 97 & 98 paint schemes.

Bikes and Music go hand in hand right!!

Wheels came from 95explosif on here and are indeed minty. Still a lovely deep colour. May have to get some red skewers to match. Not sure tho. :?

Chainring bolts was something I did 'back in the day' so it seemed only right to bring it back! Looks better on black rings than it did back then on silver ones.

The original colour was pretty nice but rather battered so it was time for a change. Was going to have it done white but decided Ivory (I like the Guiness head discription!) was just a little bit different. I'm well pleased with the end result!
