    Cheers, took a while to get there, the stem was the icing on the cake, bargain from CRC.

    Just wish you could get a matching seatpost or seatpost clamp.. but perhaps that is getting a bit censored :D

    If that's being censored , I'm the king of censored (that didn't sound right), I've just replaced a brand new FSA SLK carbon seatpost with a similar one to match the carbon weave on my bars!!

    :lol: brilliant :lol:

    The mmmbop's looking good matey, I really like them
  • How you getting on with the stem? I've got the 80mm All Mountain version on my giant and think it looks awesome. The rest of the bike looks darn good too. However, the bashguard will probably look dodgy once it gets full of dust but hey, if it works...

    If I were being censored I'd say turn the Bashring through 90 degrees so that the thinner part is behind the crankarm.

    But I'm not being censored .

    That's one of the smartest mmmbops I've seen 8)

  • What you on about? About 99% of people on this forum are going to be super-censored . We're bike pimpers...

    And I agree that it's a good-looking bike. Not too blingy, not too little :D

    :D matching weave!! I don't feel quite so bad now.

    I did wonder about that bashguard and how it will age, but it was only £15 from CRC and I wanted to give a twin ring set up a go. It has 4 indented sections, which doesnt come across in the pics, but rotating it is a good idea as it would hide one of the red SUNLINE logos, which doesn't coordinate with anything else on the bike.

    I really love the stem, love it.. not sure if it is any different to any other 50mm stem (which seems to fit the frame perfectly), but the looks of the thing, and it is beautifully made, thats enough for me.

    I did weight up the AM version, but the DH one was cheapest and in stock, a well thought out decision :D

    Thanks for the comments.
