Just waiting for the H20 black bottle cage and vintage carbon bar.

Feels like a proper mtb. :D

Looks good. That is some wacky paint work, get some close ups of it. The black maguras look good to, subtle and don't detract from the frame 8)

Close ups are in my gallery. Thanks :D
I was going to have a red magura down one side and a blue the other. But your right black Magura is better

Oh, that's nasty. I like it!

Trimbles have a 'dreams of an organic future' kind of quality to them. That fleshy looking paint suits it well!

And if I had to be picky, not a fan of the stem! A little more rise and a little less KORE would look a good deal nicer (and ride that way too??).

That's ace!

When did you get than one Tone?

Have you thought about maybe going threaded up front and getting a nice svelte Control Tech quill...?

Think it might keep it looking all nimble at the front - especially with that skinny front wheel, the stem looks a bit beefy...?

BB.

The twin-colour paint job is kinda different :)

That saddle just looks nasty though and you should have never bought it, 5mins before me. :cry: :cry: :wink: :wink: :lol:

Really like the understated Magura's, and what rear mech is that??

Thanks for all comments :D The paint job is the best for me. As i get board quick. SO i just turn it round and look at the blue side till i feel like a change and turn around to the red side :oops:

The stem is an un-sold left over. Which was polished. So i painted it black. Going away from a-head would add half a pound to the weight. I would only consider if it was for a Klein Mission Control.
The seat is excellent better than my modern. The mech is SRAM X0. Why people stick with monopolies such Shimano, MS etc i don't know. SRAM is just as good.
So has any body got Grafton speedtraps in black? Mission control and Logic forks threaded?
And theirs me thinking i had stopped :roll: :lol:
