elendil, how does the Mich Front grip and roll on the rear?
I use one on the front and it stears great (execpt on bitumen where it understeers terribly).

I've never tried it on my rear wheel. But I like it on the front (as you do)!

It's a XL S and a Front S. If you look at the chainstay-protector: that once was a Michelin Sprint S, it has a different green.

Hahahaha... That would be sweet, no one would even see me in a race! The only thing I hate about having a white bike is that it seems to atract dirt, and scratches, etc...

There's some nice rides here... I finally desided to rergister (that makes 6 mtb forums so far), I thought this would be the perfect place for my first post

Now I present my... getting there project!

The frame is a Cove Handjob XC, and has a selection of Easton goodies, Duke Race fork... I am planing to run RF's Turbine LP Cranks with Sugino rings... SRAM as far as the eye can see and abit of CK for good measure. :twisted:

The projected weight is looking about 9.65 to 9.70kg's not bad for a Steel hardtail, thats ment to be a trail bike :P

Ohhhh! I'm lovin that white Stumpy too 8)

Only thing Original on my 2003 Cannondale Scalpel 800 is the Frame, Brakes, Stem, and Fork. Everything else I've replaced with what I could afford for a light weight bike. Bike weighed in under a frogs hair of 23lbs.
Still working on it to get it under 22lbs.
