Nice

I was tempted to strip my Zaskar back down to the metal, but I quite like the yellow!


Some Pace carbon rigid's would look mint on your LE :)

Some RC30s are on my shopping list for it but good sets seem to be hard to come by. I'm watching some on the bay at the moment, but they're in shoddy condition.

Accelerates like s**t off a shovel and climbs like a mountain goat.

Cool, despite the triple triangle design, not because of it :lol:

Oooh very nice build, I for one love the triple triangle design aesthetically! What does she weigh in at?
I had one of those wierd 'snail' brake thingies on my old bike that got nicked :cry: made for quite nice braking! Do you know where I might find one?

Not sure about the weight, not heavy though!!! I'm waiting on a few Titanium bolts, a Ti railed flite and some Eggbeater SLs which should knock off another pound or so before I put her on the scales.

The TT design is funny.. I like it on this bike, it makes sense, but on GTs lower range steel bikes, it just adds weight.

Thanks Ameybrook, I was expecting a torrent of abuse after my rant about Konas :)
