Don't ya just hate it when a work colleague makes himself a martyr, and gives every fooker else his germs Evil or Very Mad .. no riding for me this w/end Crying or Very sad

Though after watching about 3hrs of Youtube, and getting some rest, I was already getting cabin fever Rolling Eyes .. so had an hour in the garage "pottering"

Decided to swap the Warhead bars on the Mega for the beautifully finished Kore OCD's I had on the Trek (which I think look better Very Happy .. and finally got around to fitting the IceTec rear rotor to match the front Cool

How odd. Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Colleague at work this morning, wandering around the staff canteen like a frigging zombie, coughing and sneezing and could hardly speak. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I did my utmost to "distance" myself from them based on the irrational fear that I would no doubt pick up what they had and that that would mean down time from the bike, so far I'm stinking of success and tomorrows long ride on the road bike is still looking good.

Get well soon. Wink

Yep ,those bars look great on there.
Strangely (or not) they look better than their own brand.
Although I had the WH's on my Dartmoor and they looked pretty funky.
Until I cut them too short.
I'm a d*ck and that's what dicks do . Very Happy

Cheers, and yeah, the WH's actually look more at home on the Trek Shocked (if a tad wide for a little 26er, see how they go, but might get trimmed a little)

I still need to shorten the hose's on the new brakes, and the dropper needs bleeding .. but messing with hydraulics is the only thing I really dislike doing to bikes, so might be worth an hours labour charge at the LBS Embarassed

Love Kore Stuff

Have a lot of it on the GT, including white Torsion bars. They mark a bit easy though Sad

True, the transfers can be a bit "chippy" .. Confused
