    Default What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

    I thought i might make a thread where you can show the things you did to your bike. Things you may not have bothered to create a whole thread for and things other people in your life dont understand how happy they should be for you :)

    So to get started I added Deore Xt brakes / 180mm front Ice rotor / 160mm rear Ice rotor / Red Oury grips.





    Damn my bike looks hot now ;)

    How can you DEFINE your limit if you don't FAIL?

    Replaced my bent saddle with my spare, gave it a wash and lubed up my chain.

    Dead easy to install them just bolt em on .... Cables needed to be trimmed by about 200mm each for what i like but since i was never gunna sell em i cut em to suit. This also is dead easy and doesnt require a bleed if done right. You get a new banjo and olive with each set so its all there. Then just follow these instructions

    and they feel awesome :)

    I eyed mine off as I backed the car out of the garage for work - and thought "I wish I was going for a [email protected] ride instead"

    Default UST rear wheel

    same thing I've done everyday for the last 2 weeks. pump up my back wheel, swish the latex and put it on the bin.
