Very nice!

What gearing are you running at the moment, front/rear?

Nice! Looks superb, must accelerate like a, erm, something that accelerates quickly.

You could save another 300 grams if you swap out the forks for Trigon all Carbon (or keep the same bike weight and put some off-road tyres on!)

cheers for your nice coments guys

the tires are very light but seam to grip well on hard packed dry surfaces, not sure how they will stand up to mud or thorns though :lol:

i went with these tires as they were cheap and light, the whole bike has been built on a tightish budget weighing up cost against grams saved, i think its as good as i could do on my sized wallet :lol:

the gearing is 34 front 17rear at the moment but i am to put on some gears and turn it into a 1x9 weighing 16.6lb or there abouts :roll:

thanks for the pics wadsy, you are a legend :wink:

stubbsy :D
