Finally! I just had a week off work and was able to get out on the bike and snap a few pics.
It's currently wearing Schwalbe City Jet tyres for some tarmac work, but I have some WTB Moto Raptor tyres ready for it (at £6 a tyre from CRC it seemed rude not to get a set!)

This bike is a "second" bike for me, and will be used for road use, shop/pub use, and off-road when the Proflex isn't around.
So far it's been all good, even had a few descents where I used the 52 tooth chainring
managing to hit 36mph (I think it's pure wind resistance holding me back tbh).
One thing bugs me though... the brakes seem crap, I don't know if it's just me being used to discs/V's or what, but the brakes aren't up to much tbh... are those Promax levers I have for V or canti brakes??? I have some X-Lite levers I'm going to try as I'm sure they are for canti brakes, so we will see.
