Following the sale of my Y33 some time back and the subsequent multi titanium frame buying obsession (Dynatech Torus - SOLD, Mongoose Pro Titanium - SOLD) ending up with my Merlin bulld which is almost finished - really yes almost ! - I was rooting about in the bits box and found one of the remnants of the Trek - these lovely Onza Porcupine grips in what can only be described as "nothing will match with THAT YELLOW !"
Sounds like a good place to start a bike build ? :lol:

I looked at the Judy's but they're more a canary yellow and darker than the Porc's - the flash photo isn't showing the true colour its more a fluoro yellow almost green tinge to it.
But yes the Mavic sticker yellow is a match !
One pair of Crossrides later .....

How 'bout an Al-mega? The front end of Boy"O"Boy's Al-mega DX is at least as yellow as those grips.
