Not got one 'laying about' but I'm just waiting for my Explosif frame to arrive so I can fit all my green parts to it! Including...Azonic Outlaw Green wheels http://i.ebayimg.com/t/AZONIC-OUTLAW-26 ... ~60_12.JPG- with Hope team Green skewers.. Literally everything apart from the cranks, tyres, brakes & Shifters is Green.. :wink:

Only problem with the Azonics is the weight - 2.3kgs inc tape & Skewers, excl cassette.
If you're looking for green chainrings there are some very nice Aerozine ones available through Ebay though.

yes - your choice is either XTR mega expensive or a set of middleburns, sti8ll epxnesive. middleburns are a bit heavier but the hardwearing coats is exactly that.

what is the story with the crnak - you paint that yourself or powder coated?
i would suggest praying top side of each crank in yellow so there is the green/yellow contrast you get on the frame.

Well bought a m960 crank complete with rings, however found out after that there worn to much and won't take a new chain,

Ohh these rings are expensive..
Any how the crank was in ok condition however decided for a colour change..
Not decided yet to keep plain or get sum black xtr decals made up.
After a polish these came up a treat..

Here is a pic fitted
This was the day after I received the crank back heli taped, not the best of pics it's a spot on match though.

Tyres have now changed as well for more winter type

Thanks it's better in the flesh, as for selling may be sooner to fund my recent build. :(
