Nowt wrong with modern parts on a rider IMHO. What are those pedals like? Look a bit freaky. :shock:

The pedals are ok really, however they would suit someone with slightly smaller feet than mine - at normally a size 12/13, I tend to rub against the red quick release on them and hang a teeny bit off the side, but not to bad other than that.

Do want to change the saddle to something a bit more sleek though.

Dendy - it is indeed a bigger version of yours. In reality it could do with being an inch or so smaller as the standover is a little closer than I like, but when riding it fits really well. I will be getting a new 853 sticker for it when I remember to order it :roll:

Jujupunk - it is a fun ride mate, hope you manage to get one soon. Never had a bike that wheelies as easy as this one!
