Respray!

Bargain that! Would look good in white!


I've been thinking about that! I've got a bit of Red on there [Salsa QRS, Ringle cage], and I have a spare Blue King H/S.. Would be cool to go for a Red, White & Blue look.. I'm sure SRAM did a setup with Stars & Stripes?

Have no idea how it'd cost over here to get it sprayed tho..

Just bought a nice front wheel for it too.. 900 XTR hub, DB spokes, alloy nipples, M231.. $40! Niiice..

Yeah Sram did a version of the 9.0sl in the stars and stripes gripshift levers and rear mech they also did a leopard print one too, that would look pretty cool actually. So jealous though about replacing my cannondale frame with one of these but never seem to be able to find one cheapish.

Just have a compaitibility issue with the front mech and a non Compact Drive chainset now.. Any ideas? :roll:
