    Remove that cassette guard thing at once, and go ride it. Also change the tyres, they look like fast traks, and fast traks are horrible.

    Apart from that, looks very nice. Whats its weigh?

    Fast Traks are OK - depends what you're riding.

    Agree 100% about the cassette guard though - those fcukers really annoy me!

    If youre riding perfectly dry, perfectly smooth, no roots, no rocks, just hardpacked dirt, that has nothing that could cut paper, then yeah, they would be ok.

    If you know what mud is, and have had a puncture in your life, then they arent the tyre for you. Saying that however, I never did run them tubeless... They might be a very nice light weight xc dry tyre when run tubeless. But I wouldnt.

    They're actually OK for road riding is more what i was thinking. They are seriously puncture prone, i agree. Give me a set of 2bliss The Captains anyday...

    I don't. The Lobster's not a massive fan of roads 8)

    I was just saying that fast traks have their uses - you told him to get rid of them without actually knowing what riding he does :wink:

    LOl dont worry about the tyres fellas they'll be going next week when payday comes around. I'll be putting a Crossmark on the back and a advantage on the front as they seem to do the job up afan, i'm up there most of the time as i only live ten miles from there.

    Nice bike :D

    Advantage is a good choice for a front tyre, but I am not a big fan of crossmarks - how about a larsen TT on the rear?
