    Nice looking bike.

    Couple of questions;

    Do you need to have such long cables

    Why aren't you running a braket on your front brake?

    Nice!

    Seems an odd choice of brakes and rotor size on such a light bike?

    no i dont really need such long cables, to be perfectly honest i know it looks odd but once i set my bike up i couldnt be bothered to change them. although it looks like the back of my tv :lol:

    Yeah it was all a matter of convenience haha
    i needed brakes... i had some saints knocking around....
    to be honest i dont do any racing its all for my own fun and pleasure, the rotas are massive but im not the lightest person either, 15stone (of pure muscle i like to think lol)
