@david gibson: WOW thats a nice and "loud" build...i thought purple would not fit at all with the BBL colour but...not bad...not bad at all :shock: do you maybe have a shot from the back to see how the purple parts look when the frame is shot from from an angle where the blue component of the colour is more visible?

The LBS did quiet them down a bit - not sure if they used oil or grease - but they told me that I'd have to have them do that about every 6 months or so depending on how much riding I do. They're definitely a quality hub, for sure, just not my style. They're also in black and I'm partial to silver hubs for this build.


Yes, I do have a picture from the back. You can click on my gallery and see a picture. :D

Let me know if you might want a set of purple Ringle QR to match the seat QR on your Adroit. If you want to make your bike just a little more violet. :wink:


It's an old picture...I now have purple Machine Tech skewers. But thank you for the offer.
