Everything apart from the saddle is as it came at the moment. Needs a clean but I'm pretty happy with it.

Updated with new bar tape and cable ties trimmed ;)

    I do like the look of the Boardman bikes, those wheels look very nice on it. Get rid of the spoke reflectors before one comes loose and ends up damaging the forks or worse, the rear mech.

    Yeah i have been meaning to take them off. Going to replace the bar tape with some yellow tape soon, will update when it's done.

    That's the best looking blue pole I've seen in a long time.

    The bar tape/insulation tape just made me throw up a little.

    Individuality. I see lots of people on BTC bikes, none with Yellow bar tape. I like it, that's all that matters at the end of the day.

    It's not just the yellow, it's the freaking Kids TV colour combo with that insulation tape too.

    Who cares? Seriously man if it bothers you that much you need to get another hobby.

    It does bother me. Immensely. And bike racing is not a hobby. It's a way of life.

    No - it looks like cack. Change the insulating tape for yellow or the bar tape for black with black insulating tape.

    Apart from that, nice bike.

    You just need to remove a few spacers from under the stem now.
