I quickly decided I would like to add a bit of bling in the colour of RED!!! Very Happy Very Happy

The Superstar lock-on grips were a must, I still really rate them, they come in every colour. Rolling Eyes

As for hydration I went for a bottle a Camel Back in red, easy to clean and doesn't taste of plastic.

I also rate the Pocket Rocket pump, it does it's job and it does it fast.

The scale is a very nice bike. Its a serious bike its a bit more ready for action than the aspect and its got red on it.

I love the frame of my aspect it fits and feels just right. It is a large and I'm bang on 6ft. I am in the process of buying bits to make it either 3x9 or 2x9 not sure yet. Smile Confused I have also just bought a new avid elixir 3 front brake and an unused 185mm G2CS rotor.
I am having to compete with my wife over any spare dosh. Her hobby is looking after marine fish and corals. Very Happy today we picked up 2 x Christmas gobbies, they are about 2cm long and they cost 50 Shocked Shocked Shocked

My next red bits were a Lizardskins rear frame & headset protector, I also bought a Superstar QR seatclamp.. oh and some monster energy vinyl, I got these just to jazz up the plain black Crudcatchers I stick on for work..... I may have overdone it a little, still can't make my mind up.. Confused

Haha - I have one of those Diamondback S10's sitting in the shed too. Its 'her indoors' bike. Used it to cycle to work for ages and it did the job without a fuss.
For the price I bought it new from Halfauds years ago I cannot fault it. Still runs sweet.
