Very nice. 8)

What's the stopping power of a rubber band? :D

I like it a lot, but a) ditch the green tyres and b) ditch the risers :wink:

Then, it'd be perfect 8)

Yeah, might be right about the tyres and grips! Risers are comfy though! :D

Comfy?! Pah! Who cares about comfy, get some flat bars on there and a 150mm stem! Your back has got to be parallel to the TT! :wink:

:lol:

Hey, it's your build, you build it how you want it. We all have different tastes and styles. Personally I think it looks just fine apart from the colours.

:wink:

That's a superb bike, and it looks great with the RockShox forks. It's well worthy of some more pics out in the sunny Devon countryside methinks. I do agree with the others about the tyres - they'd look better on the other bike - but I don't think there's too much red, just provided the tyres were black to add to the black in the forks.

Incidentally if the grips are Onza Ules, I used some for years just like that before suddenly finding out that they were designed to be fitted with the thinner end outboard. All a matter of taste obviously, but I thought I'd at least try them thin-out and guess what? I found I far preferred them that way, now my favourite grip. So I now have new Ules thin-out on all my bikes. Could be worth trying anyway.

Hi. Nah, I guy called Allister who used to ride for Simply the Bike was the first owner of the frame. He used to race it fitted with Ritchey Logic Unicrowns in red. The second owner was Steve Weir of On A Bike (now gone). He now works for Flow/Sanderson. Steve may have raced it a couple of times. I've had it since '95 and it just get used for dog walking these days! :D
