I prefer how it looked in the first post :?

I appreciate you've added rarer/more trick parts, but you've lost the look of being lightening fast even when it was standing still.

dont know if this makes sense but in the first picture it says that you are a keen mtb'r and know what good parts to run and would give you kudos among others in the know.....

The second says to me that you used to ride but now spend more time looking at it

The first pic-bike is awesome
second-overdone...sorry

probably all complete tosh i know :oops:

Hmm...(strokes beard)

Personally I think it looks cool, it's only the wheels IMO that make the bike look a tad overbuilt. Disc wheels are a pain to coordinate with most bikes at the best of times as are spinergys. I'd hunt around for a nice pair of blue ano hubs with silver rims :)

It does look better in the flesh, it mainly gets ridden with the bontrager wheels but for show with the disc drive & spinergy. Looks a bit more normal with blk tyres on them wheels which i will do when the blue tune cranks finally turn up from germany

To be brutally honest the Tioga disc is good but the front wheel is fugly

Personal opinion though and if your happy with it that's all that really matters :D
