its getting built properly tomorrow night so i'll add som decent pics then. i hooked the cables on the saddle rails so i can wheel it around.

my plan is to swap the pedals for some black ones, paint the stem matt black and strip the anno off the spider on the disc. hpoefully it will go the funny black colour!

that will rid the bike of most of the red apart from the fork decals. if it still looks odd i'll take perry's advice and remove them. (the decals not the forks)

if i still dont like it i'll be removing the yellow/blue from the frame.



i'm really tempted to put some white airborne decals on and match then so some white rs1 style rock shox decals down the forks, i have seen that recently and it looks awesome.

i sound like such a girl!

Looks great

On Ones do apparently ride well but the problem I've got with them is they're everywhere these days, that Airborne is a tad more 'specisl' so to speak :D
