Thanks, and yes GTRTS&LTS&AVALANCHE&APENNINEROADBIKE would be a bit on the old extreme side!

What 'dya think of the decals? Good or bad? I'm very unsure. One miniute I think there ok, the next I'm ready to rip 'em off and start again!

Love the bike, hate the decals (you asked!). Just looks like the backing paper has been left on to me, sorry.

On the other hand, I love the 'Pickle' decal on the RTS, we should all run our RB tags on our bikes, great idea (along with a RB sticker of course).

No, I agree, you're right Gaz. The advert for the decals on ebay was very misleading, and they also turned out to be smaller than described!

I tried to do my best, but it didn’t work!! They’ll come off tonight, and I’ll wait for Gil now.

As above, yes, the decals are naff.

A good bike can suddenly look poo with poor decals, so they will come off tonight. The more I look at it, the cheaper it looks! :roll:

Pickle decals are pretty cool, aren’t they! Mrs GT’s idea made possible by Sir gil_m 8)

I decided against bar ends as I think it would spoil the XC racer look.

That can't be right - bar ends are 100% OF RACER :-)

Shocking decals removed :lol:

SPIN plugged into the rear and Mavic 231/Pro-Circuit front wheel in the front, wrapped in butterscotch Wildgrippers.

XT chainset off and LX on, thus complimenting the rest of the LX drivetrain.

Mud added to the whole bike!! :wink:
