Thanks JB. Have your other non green eye cast over the text- I did mention that I had to change the cables on the SAB. Got some nice stainless ones and coloured nipples to go on there.

Si

At least I'm taller than you. Possibly better looking too (looks in garage at NOS Raleigh Activator II).

i threw it into photoshop and tweaked the levels on them. ;)

however there is an automatic contrast adjustment in the Picasa program available from Google that does a decent job. it's free to download and use, manages and organizes your image library, has other quick & dirty adjustments (cropping, red eye, etc...), is available on both PC and Mac, and if you have or setup a google account, you can post them on your own personal web album hosted on google.

They say a picture tells a thousand words so .....

Image

especially the Fat Ti for me. On my dream list, although my Yo is nearly done :D . I've never been a big fan of the SAB but yours has definately changed my opinion the metallic grey really looks great. You have a beautiful family, you must be very proud :lol: .

I do have a small question though..

Did your bars on the Fat Ti come with the blue shim? I only ask as my titec ti bars have the black plastic shim and it's cracked :( . It doesn't notice when clamped up but can you get replacements for them, not blue though just plain silver or ideally red but I think that's less likely to be available if at all.

Thanks in advance.
