Yeah dropper's are awesome bits of kit

Indeed, no Splashbacks! They're not a really good winter tyre, for the other 3 seasons yup damn good, but in winter not so good

yeah, it does look a little different wearing black rubber. I think that maybe it makes the frame stand out a little more than the Splashback's

she's deffo not a garage queen who only comes out on sunny days, she's a proper dirty girl :D

As it should be 8)

Think I have to agree on the blackwalls too, definitely directs you more to the frame which can't be a bad thing!

I prefer it with the blackwall tyres. Just my personal preference on nearly all bikes. I think it goes back to my first MTB being an early 90's Kona with Kona blackwall tyres. They were the new trendy things then and it has always stuck with me.
