Hi, im Davy, new to WW but not to bikes etc.....

not what you guys would class as a WW hack, but she does me fine :)

Image

Image

Added some S-works Barmacs, much nicer than stock items IMO:
Image

upgraded wheels, not lightweights but they suit my budget, Mavic Cosmic SL:
Image

LOOK KEO Classic, again not carbons...but half the price lol
Image

Broke her in with 426miles in 4days from Fife,Scotland to Worcester for charity :D (broke my ass at the same time!)

and thats about it right now, going to upgrade as i go but happy with what i have for the moment :thumbup:

The red pedals look really dramatic on the bike, but you should try experiment with other colours for the bar tape. The Barmac is really nice and solid looking!

Nice barmac, surprised i missed that before.

Best upgrade right now would be the removal of the look sticker off the spesh frame.

I like most bikes on WW (especially this one) because everyone has their own likes and styles which i can appreciate...but please remove the look stick under the seat post, it just doesn't "look" right

For me it's like having a BMW sticker on an Audi.
