Ahem... (switches to 3rd person)... OrangeRetro thinks that although supra has made a good jobs of the rattle can paintjob, that he should strip it back off, polish that bad boy delboy stylee and stick some more purple on it.. oh and lose the Lx chainset.. then supra would be tooooo cool for skool! :shock:

Although it is obvious that a reasonable amount of time and effort has been put into the paint job and build, I have to say I agree with OrangeRetro; that paint job needs to come off. The frame deserves a good polish to bring out the best in it (then the purple would work too).

If you must keep the paint, then (and I'm loathed to say this) you need a yellow Rockshox up front.

As it is, it's just not my cup of tea.

I agree with losing the LX chainset to create a more retro look.

Seriously though, what is with the 3rd person thing?? :shock: BarneyRubble finds it disturbing! :)

I think that you should use the Manitou's as inspiration. Alloy, purple and black is the way forward IMHO.

DOH! That woulda been awesome! Supra kicks himself for not thinking of this.....




On another note, Supra is quite broke not from the build and XMas. Supra will ask Santa for XT deraileurs, though the LX are sexy in black....
