I'd really like to see this with black-walls. For me, it'll turn into a super-stealth machine. It's a cracking build by the way. Looking forward to some proper pics when the weather improves.

Cheers. The original plan was to use black xt cranks and hubs, i would have probably gone with black walls then.

The tyres on at the moment are more suited to summer conditions so will be changing them to ride in the wetness :)

Thanks for the headset information. My Explosif has yet to get to the start gate.
