Hi fella

Yeh brakes are good, a lot better once I had fitted some ceramic specific pads. very confident in their performance so far - a lot more function than the curves I tried for a week!

Great bike, but wouldn't those excellent green touches look great with Wildgrippers? I like the Psychos, but I have a feeling I'd like it even more with Michelins.
