I'm sat here wondering where the heck I'm going to get a couple of white Porcs from for the Prestige and you go post a pic of two sat around doing nothing in your shed.

IT AINT FAIR!

Switchblades vs American Switchblades:

Am SwB metal topcaps, regular SwB rubber topcaps

Different shaped crowns

Am SwB mat silver crown, reg SwB polished crown

Am SwB larger diameter blades

Am SwB ???? tubing, reg SwB Prestige tubing

Both have the blades finished in black chrome

Not pictured: The American made Switchblades looks to have domes where the dropouts are connected to - a bit like Fat Chances


Personal favourite :) : A tiny bit in favour of the regular.

That is the same what I thought Lee :wink: A bit more classy.

The Carambas are nice cranks, sure ..but with my riding I always touch the cranks with my heels, so it is actually a bit pity to use them :oops:

They are hollow and they feel lighter than the Kookas.

No probs

They are indeed CD rings. By far most of my bikes use non CD, so...

They are =>
red/blue/green 46
red/green 34

What do you want?
