So even though I'm a sucker for RBs and hang around this site like an addict round a crack-house I mainly ride modern bikes.. and 'the wife' pretty much only rides modern bikes.

I bought these Wildgrippers off the bay the other day without any real plans for them. When they appeared in the flesh Amy liked 'em and I thought they'd look pretty rad on her 'Dale, so I took the opportunity to retro-up her bike a bit (and score brownie points).

Soooo.. here they are.

Now I can't decide if they look 8) , or :lol: , or :shock: , or :facepalm:

I'm definitely leaning t'wards 8)....but there's something eating away at my brain telling me modern mixed with retro is a sin :twisted:

What's your view?? Modern is modern.. retro is retro.. or hey its cool lets just forget about it and make love not war.

I did try a set of these many moons ago and lost my bike on a roundabout when leaning a bit too far. Only just kept out of the path of traffic and these days I don't lean as far over on the road as they made me paranoid. Doesn't stop them looking nice though.
