  • rake-much obliged.feel so stupid i wasn't able to do that1could you pm me as to how its done,cheers baz
  • Close, but the black bar tape and seat...mmmm not going to win bling with that. Also, the bike should be pictured drive side so we can see the bling rear mech etc...

  • black bar tape,is actually black carbon effect.i thought that it would contrast against the rest of the white.i have a white fizik arione,but that is on my scott plasma ltd tt bike.the one on the boardman,is my most comfortable saddle,that goes onto every new bike i purchase.re the pic,i have a photo on flickr of the drive side ,but am too thick to workout how to upload it!the mech is as came on the bike,it will suffice for now.maintaining 6 bikes is hard on the pocket.keep the comments coming,any constructive always welcome.

    Remove pump from frame. Remove saddle bag from bike.

    Back pockets matey, back pockets. :D

    Beautiful bike by the way, I think the colour scheme works brilliantly, hot summers day, black tarmac and rolling fields, screaming round on thet beast would be excellent. You will have to go fast by the way, you cannot go slow on a bit of Gucci like you have. :D

    Sorry, too much white for my tastes. And black in the wrong places. I think it'd look a million times better with all black wheels and finishing kit. I've yet to see a bike with white rims that hasn't looked a bit try-hard.

    Looks like the sort of bike you only ever see on sportives with a cyclist dressed all in white as well. :wink:
    More problems but still living....

    That's a properly bling, cable-tied on rear light you've got there.

    How have you managed to afford so many bikes with written English like that?!

    :)

    Sure thats not his Cadence sensor by his BB your talking about matey! really nice bike though, least you would be seen on the road.

    I use a cut down bottle to put all my odds and sods in and my pump and food in my back pocket, saves on seat bags I find if the velcro comes loose it wrecks your tights
    Helmand Province is such a nice place.....
