lovely bike but seriously the pink totally and utterly ruins it but each to their own Laughing


the boys in work said the same when I mentioned it.
When I took it in they actually liked it, bit of a marmite colour scheme.

Shweet Cool

How did you find the fitting ? .. it was a complete bazza on the Nukeproof rims Mad .. tho I realised (after!!) it would've been a lot easier to seat with a spray bottle and soapy water Rolling Eyes Embarassed

New bit's fitted over the weekend.

Got out for a few hours today at bike park wales.

Grips are good improvement, New cassette was just what I needed to help me up. The rear brake was perfect with the new pads in.

Just need to sort my fitness out now Embarassed

I'll let you know.

The idea is when your at your weakest point of the stroke it acts like a 30T and when your at your most powerful point its like a 34T.
