btw, for cross use in muddy conditions i would put the cable hangers a bit higher over the tires, mud gets stuck less in the brake cables. for the cable from the left brakearm to the right, you can use old shifting cables.

Yo Bro Henrik, da man 8)

Really nice frame and fork - of all the people I know, you are the least expected not to have some more flashy stuff on your bike hehe!! It's gonna hurt really bad when you see my new Ridley bike!

I'm just kidding - that's a really nice bike! Maybe I'll see you in Korsør?

he he.... i think the only cheap things on my bike is the 105 gearing... an then my old wornout flite sadle... but let´s see how the gearing runs this winter - then maybe next year there will be some other stuff on it... using dura ace in the summer.... an after 2 runs on the cross bike i allready miss the "new" shimano gribs....

the tires works really well.... they are alot faster than i expected them to be... an the still have a lot of grib (in the forrest) tried them om some muddy grass uphill and thye tended to pack alot... but let´s see!!! :D

the frame... hmmm it´s blue - i really wanted the white/silver one... but this was in stock and got very cheap.... so i didn´t bother waiting for the other...
