that looks well nifty

(dont like the gold green purple parts though - unnescessary, get the red parts on there)


Thanks cyfa. If I had built this from scratch I wouldn't have done it this way but maybe that's a good thing. I always tend to go a little stark.

Very much unsure about the rubbers though...

Anyone happen to know the year of the frame? Previous owner hazarded a guess at 2006.

bloody lovely mate :D i have been hugely bitten by the modern bug, love these spesh frames, gonna have to swap retro for modern me thinks.


Thanks Jody. Took some finding. Couldn't decide between a Stumpie or an Epic. Always wanted a Stumpie since boyhood but this one put a spanner in the works of that plan.

Swapped the breadbin saddle for a sell italia carbon off my zaskar and took her for a quick 15 miler into black park, Stoke common.

Loved the feel of it. She's blindingly quick. Point and go..

Excuse the iPhone pics

Looks great that. Got to love the subtlety of an s-works. Right balance of colour with the splashes of red too. Very nice :)

Thanks. Bought this after you sold your mates Stumpie to someone else. :wink: Did me a massive favour.

I'm still not sure about the rubbers. Something under 2 inches and made by scwalbe might be a better look. No doubting the xcpro's grip tho.
