    satisfying your pink-obsession too!

    wonder if he'd have bought them in that coloour if he'd had to have gone into a real-live shop (assuming they were ordered from the internet).

    if he DID go into a shop, then i bow down in awe, as that's way beyond the call of duty :wink:

    They look awesome :D Not tried them out yet as he only finished fitting them last night. We have friends coming to stay for the weekend so I won't get a proper ride before Sunday at the earliest :(

    I've never had hydro brakes before (I very excited :D )

    oh look, a penny!
    Everything in moderation ... except beer
    Beer in moderation ... is a waste of beer

    If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,
    then riding a rigid singlespeed is like licking it
    ... or being punched by it, depending on the day

    they're lovely.

    when i tried out my bike last week, the guy in the shop did say, have you used hydro disc brakes before, if not, be careful... so i was :D

    My old brake pads were quite worn, so I really had to slam the anchors on to stop my not inconsiderable weight, particularly on downhills. I suspect I may have a few hairy moments as I get used to the new stopping power :shock: :lol:

    Don't be slammin no anchors, I'd never used these new fangled brakes before either and the avid elixir brakes on my bike just amazed me first ride out. I find feathering the brakes in- between the rougher parts at well timed intervals, really does get the job done.

    Watching this clueless buffoon make an ar$e of myself out on the trails. PRICELESS! :D

    that's great advice - and what i instinctively did on my first try (the feathering bit)
