Hello everyone Very Happy

Newbie from wrexham here joining the club.

I've been riding on and off now for a few years. Started again last year an bought a giant stance just to get me going but, just the other week picked up my new ride.

Lapierre zesty xm





All I've done so far is put dmr v12 pedals on and ditched the 2 x 10 to a 1 x 10. Think it looks cleaner that way.

So much of an improvement over the stance and has me gliding through the air very nicely.

Look forward to learning lots from you girls and guys.

Dave

Very nice Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool

Love the colour scheme - just like a Ford le mans GT40

If Steve McQueen ever owned a MTB - I bet it would be one of those

It was a hell of a place, you could eat ya grub off the floor, Snap-on chest's everywhere, and many cars from celebs, mega rare sports cars, and also current race cars sometimes (I think the owner race's at Goodwood every year) every petrol heads dream of a place Cool

Sorry for the thread hijack OP dude Wink
