Yeah, the only time I go into halfords for months and there's the tyres just say there begging to be bought..

I bought my Hope from JEjames, worked out about a tenner cheaper.....I am a skinflint. :lol:

Yeah I'm gonna use a smear of carbon paste. There's a seller on eBay with sachets of the stuff (FSA branded) for 99p and free post... :wink:

Yayyy at last!

Going by the rubber boot on the pipe I'm saying Maguras of some sort (look the same as the ones I had on Magura rim brakes).

Get cracking you won't look back once its all up and running! :)
