I really like the look of these. There is one on ebay that I'm trying to stop myself from bidding on.

Nice indeed, I'd ditch the red ring for black, spacer above stem must go and so must the hateful ritchey grips.

And get some finishing caps for the fence posts. ;)

Running Podium MMX rims is a weight concession to far for me - even in if was light enough to use them.

77kg maximum weight and a maximum mileage :shock:

A DT Swiss Nudie shock would look good and drop a few more grams 8)
