    Thats why i went for them, i used to run red/black fire xc pro's waaay back when, when they first came out and i saw them on CRC and though yes ive gotta have them for old skool reasons and the fact the red/black is in keeping with the bikes colour scheme, i still wanna fit my DCD though lol

    Always fancied a Dyane, but a 2cv would do I suppose.

    Nice colour match, tyres and car.

    Great value bikes them. :D

    I used to have a DCD I can't even remember what they were supposed to do but I knew I had to have one as all the MBUK guys used to run them lol
  • Haha! That's the very reason I got one too!!!
    I think it was meant to reduce chain slack etc?? Think mines still in the shed somewhere??
