Hello Dudes

I've fitted new wheels (pace hubs on Mavic 231 CD's) and Ground Control S tires.

Also changed the bars to the wider hyperlite's, fitted Xlite stubbies and switched to the ridged legs (while the RC35's visit Justbackdated).

Bike has gone from this

To this

Hopefully going to make it on Friday, might have to join you after for a drink, all depends what the new baby decides to do!!

Did Drew mention if Thrunton was during the week or weekend? I’m back at work next Monday, Boo.

Might be off to Kielder on Sunday (Red Route), will email you the plans, thats if it comes off.

Looking MINT!!!

Deffo agree on the tyre choice..think I have a photo of your bike when you had the black pace stem on there...looks much better yellow!

How do you like the ride now without suspension?

Awesome bike, I really like these RC100's. Also agree with the tire choice.

BTW can anyone tell me what make the seat quick release is? I have one and don't know anything about it.

Cheers

^ Cheers. Thanks for letting me know. I was going to bin it, but maybe someone, somewhere might want it, now I know what it is.
