Brilliant !
I think it's ace.
Does it require some traction now ? :D


Where did you get the white Jagwires from ? They would look sweet on my Kili.

White cables (complete kits) purchased on ebay. The tyres are certainly not mud specific but do the job on hard pack. I was looking for something light weight w/ low rolling resistance. These are 310 grams each.

Thanks, I'll have a look on ebay.
The traction was a bit of a joke to do with trauma (I'll get my coat). :oops:
I think you've done a fine job, a very nice build, nowt wrong wi tyres :wink:

It's good to have a sense of humour/imagination and break the mould, I'm sure plenty will scoff and moan but it's your bike and not following the 'rules' sometimes is fun :)

Fun build. Much better than some of the humourless "it's totally original even down to the no name BB they cut costs on instead of a UN72" builds!

You have really nudged me to paint up my battered Alu Cindercone (1999ish) into the CinderCan I call it.....or maybe Ashcan?
