alternately, would blue trailblasters be too much blue?

she now has crossmax and 1.9in trailblasters, and a healthy dose of mud!

the trailblasters are rubbish :(

you can just about see her poking out from behind my cousin's joke bike - he stripped it after one ride and is never putting it back together

She's looking pretty sweet now. I can't help thinking that seeing as you have black forks and black LX, a black seatpin and black bars and stem would look even better though. Just one man's opinion, mind.

Love that paintjob, too.

the idea keeps suggesting itself to me - the fact i want to change the headset anyway is not exactly holding me back from doing it if you get me....

might do a photoshop request

Be fair, Trailblasters aren't mud tyres! They're quite quick summer tyres, even commuting IMPE.

I use Trailrakers for mud, but I must say none of these designers get it quite right. A Trailraker has fantastic forwards traction and the knobs are well separated so it doesn't clog, but no knobs on the side so it won't corner!

Don't you like gunmetal grey P2s then?
