So what bits are 'spare' now.
Must decide on a colour for mine and get on with it.

Headset replaced for an equal RealSeal in black, cranks were some sime silver Altus cranks with black chainrings, collar was the original mango version that came with the frame.... But is impossible to find the original matching cranks and headset for... :)

BOTM inspired me to do some updates and make some new pics today. I scored some mint M737 pedals, they must look a bit better than the M959's currently mounted. And I changed the front tyre for a new Tioga Psycho Edge, all looks a bit nicer to me.

Thanks! I must say it's quite difficult to catch the colour in a photo. The paintjob still amazes me every time I look at it, it's really done very well.

I like the fading colour change in the paint!

Just entered my Summit in BOTM, lets see if we can get a rocky to win this month =)
