I would be too scared to ride it!

What a find.

Hi there,

Hmmmm, on closer inspection although it looks similar, mine is not exactly the same.... mine came with the following instead:

"Coda" spd pedals (which i promptly changed for Odyssey bear cage ones, silly idea really if you want to keep your shins)!!!! The handlebar is not a carbon race one like yours but instead a "Coda Expert" branded one. The brake lever set up is the same Power Control 7EXA Diacompe , but mine does not run Deore LX brakes or gears, instead it came with STXRC stuff, and a Sachs Centura rear derailier, Coda 700 hubs but the same Mavic 221 rims and Mythos XC tyres......

I will have a go at getting a picture up, but as i am new here, i am not quite sure how to as yet. I am also going to look it up in the catalogue too and see why mine came with such odd bits! Like the DD60 forks instead of the P Bones which i remember complaining about when i got the bike. Anyway i need to find out as im looking to sell it and will need to know for that :) Will try and get pic up ASAP :)
