Friday night is shiny styly 'Dale night. Gorgeous gorgeousity.

K, Gazz - those are both outstanding. Really love the look of the Killer V, why'd you move it on?

to small, took me about 10 bikes to come to the realization that I needed a bike with a longer top tube and that means I need the more gate like frame these days.

You fancy a dale then ZZ?

Aye, on the same list as an e-stay and an M2 Stump bigger than 18".

Killer V would be nice, but don't see them come up much. If at all.

they are indeed nice looking machines, saw one at the SS that had been sprayed by bob jackson in the dukes of hazards colours resplendent with the number 01 decal. I always fancied putting on some polished girvin forks on a killer V 8)

OK some wee mods, front brake blocks changed saved a whopping 20g but the pedal change saved only 8g. Anyway on the scale with the grips sat on it is fluctuating between 18lb and 18.01 :twisted: I remembered I've fitted steel bolts for the brake and the levers have steel bolts too. They dust caps could go too I suppose :P
