Helloooooo pretty lady :shock::shock::shock:

I think that's the first mountain bike I've liked with silly wheels :wink: Although there were some cross bikes I thought looked cool back in the early nineties...

...until the wheels got banned for severing peoples' arms :shock: :lol:

Great build. The wheels are marmite but there's no denying it looks awesome and understated.

I'm well impressed to the point of it making me want a 'dale :roll:

That is stunning. Colour combination is spot on.

ive been thinking about saddles etc,

after my street ride tonite, i have been toying with the idea, of perhaps, changing the tyres, and setting it up for fast street riding, ive got sum 1" slick tyres, i geared the front chainrings bigger than i normally would, i could swap out the rear sprockets for a tighter ratio, shorten the chain, and use it for street nite training in the winter months, i was dubious of the turbo saddle when i finished the build, felt it may have looked slightly chunky....?

if i changed a few bits around.....what do you rekon a white Tioga spider would look like????

guys thanks for all the feedback too.... 8)
