Looks lived with, like a favorite pair of shoes....I like it 8)

Personally, I'd make the brakes match though :roll:

Yup they're HS33's. Only had them on a couple of weeks, stops on a dime but are a bit of a sod to setup!!. I'm a little worried they may be too powerful for the current set of forks. But I have a set of Project 2's ready to go on (once I have the thread extended) and am looking out for some boosters to go with them.
