Like the white and red one!


Thanks, so does my partner.... come hell or high water there is no way she said she would ever part with it, loves it to bits.
The paints a bit tatty in places, offered to get it repainted in the exact same colours and she said no! :lol:
Just have real issues with the front mech not wanting to change into the granny ring properly. Probably something to do with the e-type bolt mount thing being ground off and me replacing with a DMR type equivilant.

Why that?
And - you got some BETD stuff then? 8)

If you like to, you could send me a list of the parts for sale as I want to build up some "backup stuff" for my fsr. :)

Personally, I prefer the older Shimano parts (95*) but the frame+fork combination is very nice. The silver of the frame is just great! Reminds me a lot of my favourite color scheme of racing cars... 8)

Sorry to interrupt but does any1 know the installation length of rear damper exactly? 160 oder 165mm? (Do 5mm matter?)

Best regards
