Ian ....

 that post should have had a warning on it ..............


** Warning .... BIKE PORN .... **

Thats looks superb  ;)

Cheers Steve  ;)
I can't stop looking at it, I think the Pace forks make the difference, the white X-Fusions didn't suit it at all

Oh, edited your scrolling text ;)

Fitted the RC41 Fighters, bars & stem earlier and put the wheel set from the RC300 on, just got the brakes left to do and then its ready........just praying for the weather to cheer up now, bloody rain!  ::)



I don't mean to offend but thats one ugly bike (apart from the raw carbon). Each to their own I suppose.

Perhaps it will look better with Clyne mud on it?

On a more positive note I did like the other bike(s) :)

Really?? Now, I've got a Marin Attack Trail and I think it looks lush, so maybe my opinion doesn't count. But I think it looks great...

Surely those fork leg lowers are on back to front though?!!?!

Pig-ugly bike matched only by the grimness of the surrounding scenery hey Rob?  ;)

Port Eynon Point? Haven't taken a bike up there in years. Did you tackle any of the scree slopes? I seem to remember some are do-able, if a bit mental. Maybe not ideal on your brand new carrbon bike though...

Ha, Pig-ugly!  ;D

Yep, Port Eynon point ;) Didn't do the lose rock stuff, as you say, don't want to get it dirrrrty let alone pepper it with boulders!!!  :D

I have ridden down the steep slope at the end of the point before but that was many years ago when I was quite a bit younger and fearless (stupid) ;)

Scree slopes?  They sound fun.  Any plans to make a visit any time?

They're a bit short, but from memory fun. I'll go and check out what's there next time I'm down that way and then maybe think about putting together a west Gower ride that takes them in.
