All comments welcome Melvin,
The XT is all a straight transplant from the manitou, so was the easiest option and by silver I assume you mean stem & rims ? , I would like some nice spengle or spin wheels , they would look pesh on a carbon bike like this but alas - my money cupboard is very empty and such wheels are still bringing good money on the bay at the moment, maybe one day though eh
not really been out for a proper ride yet, it has been at my workplace until I can make space in the sh*thole shed - eventually
, but just from riding it on tarmac to work it feels very comfy (but then, don't all bikes with riser bars) with a responsive back end, the stem may be a bit long so that could change in time.
Ps. sorry about the reflectors
, only spare pedals I could find in the afore mentioned shed
