Some little updates.... :D

GONE - Fred Salmon bars - Now nice silver Hyperlights
GONE - Nasty Zefal bottle cage - Now nice Ringle H20
GONE - Wrecked X-Lite Stubbies - Now....nothing... :lol: :lol:
GONE - Dodgy rubber grips - Now nice cleay ODI/Yeti grips

To do: new decals, maybe a respray (same colour), new stem, new seat, new seatpost, new rear hub....


Less is more....a little minimalist but better....do you agree?

:oops: :oops: :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

so, slap me..... :lol: :lol:

You do have a point - This is a work in progress and very much 2nd priority behind the Funk, plus it came with them on....and yeah, they should be changed at some point.....(I'll consider myself told off :P )

dont get me wrong - i love it

when i was a lad back in the day, acquisition of shiny things was a priority


so you'd often see M900 mechs shifting 7-speed with an alivio hub

this is real retro.

Yes I remember it (fairly :oops: well)....my first set of shiny red Ringle skewers and Ringle H20 proudly added to my new Saracen Traverse in 1991/2 was a defining moment........

I remember buying a carbon seatpost for my Muddy Fox Explorer in about '88. Made it MUCH lighter! :roll: :D
