haha! it really is my style :wink: besides the tires, they ar my favourite parts!

the tires were average but i wanted to give them a go as onroad-offroad jobs. and the brakes....I have to say, I cant see myself using canti brakes again... offroad anyway. I like one finger braking and i've never had the skillz to set up cantis to have that sort of power.
Thanks very much for the comment though!

welcome to this forum !

really nice frame and parts - personally I even like the modern tyres, but get rid of those grips and the bar and switch the yellow Turbo the a black one, or get yourself a Filte; if its fits you :wink:

then you will have a great bike !
