Wow!

Fred, this is looking fantastic.

You should enjoy every second of this...

Although I'm sure you read through the recent mismatched hubs thread very nervously!

Good grief Fred!

It must be something if one of my biggest pet-peeves doesn't even bother me... Yeti grips on a non-Yeti!

(Which everyone does, so don't mind me!)

That perfect white Syncros logo just looks so good poking through.

I mean, it would look just as good on another clear grip, but I'll allow it!

Loving the WTB headset usage too.

Great work mate.

I understand your remark about Yeti grips but I did not find any other clear Grip Shift covers, so... ;)
