Love the orange avids.


Nice one :D

I was planning on maybe swapping out the avids for m952 cos I was originally unsure about the two different shades of orange. But now I have tried the avids I don't think I will be changing due to the fact they are awesome as far as v brakes go..


the avids rock agree with you and I think they are a good match.


so much power for such small light weight vs 8)

Beautiful end result there. Just lovely.
XTR grey looks great against the metallic orange.

clearly one the most gorgeous frame on retrobike

just one comment : orange avids could be swapped for 950 xtr just for a nice colour contrast and a recall of the 5 arm superb crankset ( much better looking than the 4 arm one)

I have a natural aversion to all things carbon, but this just looks so 'right.'

Stunning bike, and a terrific set of photo's to show it off; my favourite...

Cheers! :D

I touched on swapping the avids with m950 vs earlier in the thread. Grey would probably be slightly aesthetically pleasing but as I previously mentioned, the avid v's are ace performance wise. I have used xtr vs and never really got on with them, imo too much play/squeal and not as light/powerful as these and I suspect other avids. Maybe I will swap them for some grey avid ti if and when a nice set crops up.
