LX?

it used to have canti which looked nice but didn't stop....then I tried Maguras in the Peeks, they stopped fine but didn't look right.....so I've gone back to basics :roll:

I'm always open to suggestions :wink:

Sweet!
I've just rebuilt mine with all new gear & it rides a treat, fire it up a hill in the big ring. Crossmax SL's really help get the power down.
I just need to get some more stickers made up, so if I could trouble you for a couple of close ups. Would be muchly appreciated.
Cheers KJ

Sextacular! Always loved the Ti and steel Axises? Axes? Not sure what the plural would be.

Please help Kiwi John out with the decal pics or he is liable to cover the whole damn thing in surplus shop camo tape!

Unfortunately that surplus shop has closed (the one up from Ray's). I could always paint it black. :wink:
