    Is your name vorn then?

    That's a shame as it's a great colour.. If I wanted it reprinted in the future could it still be redone in the same colour of have you stopped doing it on 2015 bikes only?

    For the proper stuff Lapierre Spicy (12) with some nice mods (when I get the chance these days, not often enough)


    [​IMG]




    Custom Inbred I built from scratch recently for my commute and urbun hacking duties, loved it, put a lot of time (and a substantial amount of money) into it and then 3 weeks after I finished it some scrote stole it from outside my 5th floor flat's private hallway when I literally left it for 15 mins to jump in for a quick change, gutted, gonna have to rebuild it again, it was perfect (apart from the flappy paddle XT brakes/shifters, they were due for replacement) ...


    [​IMG]




    Currently got this stand in Charge Grater hybrid, dont love it tho, means to an end although the Alfine hub is a revelation!


    (NOTE THE BIG EFFOF GROUND ANCHOR AND FORGETABOUTIT CHAIN, LESSON LEARNT LOL)

    I was tempted to go 29er but had a go on 650B and felt it was more for me

    I like the 29er because it's like you don't have to plan your line and it's much faster

    2001 s works hardtail, built it myself, hardly ever ridden now. 2011 stumpy fsr (only went in for inner tubes and came out with 2 (one for the better half) in the new year sale, £1300 each on interest free, couldn't resist that bargain ), 2013 stumpy evo with ks lev, love it, I'd be more gutted to have that stolen than my car, well the Golf anyway!

    Just picked up my new bike on Friday and just back in from it's first outing at the new Cathkin Braes Commonwealth Games MTB course (which is literally 10 mins from my flat, bonus!)

    It's a 2014 Norco Sight Carbon 7 1.5 650B, replacing my Lapierre Spicy which if I'm being honest was just a bit too much bike for the type of riding I do, I've really no need for 160mm travel and 36mm forks, this is a shed load lighter and the 650b size wheels really do seem to me to roll over the rough stuff a little smoother, it's subtle but just my first ride out and I could immediately tell something was different, and I like it!


    [​IMG]


    Very pleased with it and I'll use it more than the Spicy for sure.

    Looking into buying a 29er hardtail now for a bit of speedy cross country.

    Did Guisburn and Dalby forest this month on my Five. So much fun on the Hope line in Guisburn.
