:roll: im sorry i offended and i mean this with no offence intended but one of the things i love about this forum is the lack of strict rules makes it such a friendly place to be, a simple no mate not for sale from messiah would have sufficed.

I think that the Union Jack saddle would look spot on. i don't think it's too much at all.

Running green srp crank bolts on my Explosif - they are made of cheese ufortunately, one bolt is looking a bit chewed but they do seem to hold the cranks on tight. Hmm probably wouldn' bother with again!

I'll second what david says about the saddle. On any other bike, nah, but on one of these 8)

Don't delay on getting those collars on. I bought a set of these when they first came out and have serviced my pedals about 6 times since, last weekend in fact. Send them to me and I'll do it for you for a couple of beers if you like, no prob's.

Personally I would say no to all the other stuff going in this bike though.

I would defo only use those jockey wheels on a single speed, and the crank bolts on a garage queen. Does anyone on here do upholstery for a living? There would be a huge business in recovering saddles from us alone!

Nice lot of goodies pal.

SRP Red alloy Crank Bolts Not sure I want to risk fitting these.

Lol I had the exact same thoughts. Ended up sticking to the stock steel crank bolts but using anodisd dustcaps to cover 'em :)

Ive used them :roll:

But i cranked down with steel bolts first then replaced with the alloy SRP'S.

Same method for tightening..Remove alloy ones...Install steel, torque then remove etc, etc, etc....

Pain in the ass :!:

But BLING...
