my new ride!

came to me yesterday (cheers vitomonkee). fully stripped, greased and rebuilt using 739 xt bits (chers lewis1641) and most of the finishing kit off my rocky mountain.

s works carbon bar and easton carbon seatpost tie in nicely with the carbon swing arm and i think there is a pretty good balance of red in there too.

had a scoot on it and it rides really well. really happy with it but the true test will be its maiden voyage off road on wednesday evening.

what do you lot make of it?

I really like that. Bit of paint on the forks and it'll be very tidy.

I'm the world's biggest fan of CarbonFibre so half the bike gets my love.
The rest of the bike is pretty cool too. 8) 8)
