Well done Mike! The bike's looking absolutely delicious with the Panaracer Magics! Just the way I would like my Ti bike to be. ;)

:shock: great looking bike, love how the AMP suites the frame 8)

had the tyres seen any use before you bought the bike ? the look brand new.

hows the brakeperformance with V's on the front and canti's on the rear - are the levers the same ?

very nice! per magas, the front brake might be a bit dodgy in feel and performance as its combining canti levers and vee brake arms.

that must be due to the amp fork i presume, given it has no canti hanger on it.

flick the tyres...white mtb tyres are just.....not right :D

its a sweet looking bike for sure! love the amp front end

Thanks for all the feedback guys! :D

I know they're not to everyone's taste but I like the look of the tyres myself - thanks again dancingjack - but I'll test out amberwalls once I get my hands on a decent set.

I haven't ridden the bike yet but will be be sure to check out the brakes - esp. the front - the rear is a Suntour XC Pro SE which looks pretty purposeful.
