Cheers for comments fellas

I have some green srp chainring bolts but they are a bit darker green than I had hoped. Also have a green hope seatclamp on it's way. Oh and some green bottle cage bolts.

Pedal wise I have some shimano m540 clipless on at the mo.

Well I like the drivetrain as it works faultessley & I don't care for it much so it gets a good hammering -but I do keep it clean!

Match the stem and seat post , and ditch the XT chainset and it will be fine .

Thae crankset is an lx and should really go.... The rest is great, including the post (you should adjust the saddle tilt, tho)

Oh dear, look what happens when you 'actually' ask for comments... :shock:

so here's my two pennyworth...

I like the seat pin. But i think it should be the same colour as the stem. - This is one of my rules. And both should be the same colour as the rims. Or near in the case of CD rims. Another of my rules.

I like the green. What about a green seat collar to match the headset?

And maybe some green bolts?

I do like Hei Hei's. Good looking bike. :D
