couldn't resist the offer of some nos cooks rsr's..mmm loverly :D
the snag is that they are an odd pair-up.
both in their own right the most desirable mtb retro colourways imo.
anyhow i seem to have gather over the time the 'odd this and the odd that'.
was doing some tinkering and came up with a sort of harliquin look.
drive side 3DV and t'other ringle blue :?
does it work, or shall i continue with sourcing parts :shock:
anyone else running odd colours etc :?:

Looks brilliant IMHO! :D

I've got both colours on my Fat too (as well as purple->blue fade paint), but not from one side to t'other 8)

I'd alternate the colour, like have the purple brakes on the left etc. But yeah, mixing colour works 8)

You took a problem and solved it :D It makes more sense than my idea of stripping off anodising then getting it re-done :(
Yep looks sweet that YO...

I like the drive side more

...but for others that could be different

+ it looks wild ...what is FAT typical

So I think it is a success

I'm sorry. IMHO it's vile! However my bikes are very 'showroom' so each to their own. I just wouldn't do it on mine!

Beautiful bike and a lovely choice of components though. Are those Judy's painted gold to look Mag 21 ish. If so 8) x1000 (just get the other leg done too! :wink: )
