That computer doesn't look so big, I think you were exaggerating! :wink:

I really like the look of this one Matt, are you keeping it?

It's great Nick, I really like it. It's so light and quick, I love the resposiveness of it. Would like to think this will be a keeper, but I've said that before!

Got some Mavic Cross Trail wheels in the pipeline, which should help loose a little bit of weight. Also just bought some Genesis rigid forks, which look really nice. I fancy a bit of rigidness over summer.

Will get some updated pics posted soon :)

Had a cracking ride on the rigid machine today. It's lost a couple of lbs in weight and rides great. Honestly thinking of selling the Fox forks.

Looks very long in the leg...

Tried calling this evening Matt, you ever turn your phone on these days, or should I take a hint? ;)

The Courts told you to stop calling me! Don't make me press the panic button...

The XTR brakes off the Giant are now on the Enduro. Now have a set of White Avid Elixir 5's on the Giant now. They're great brakes and match a little bit better being White. Also awaiting on a Sella Italia SLR saddle now, which should save a few grams over the Specialized saddle which is currently fitted.

Got an offer of some 100mm Rock Shox Reba Team forks, but not too sure I can afford them at the moment.
