    Pimp My Ride !

    So after a couple of months on the Goblin XO I decided to dress it up a bit.

    i have ordered Jagwire shifter and brake lines in Organic Green. Should look nice with the green highlights on the XO frame. Shift cables arrive tomorrow. brake lines coming next week.

    Here is a pic of the color. should look good. BTW: also ordered grips to match the lines.

    Cannot wait.

    Now where can i get a green saddle ??

    Went with ESI:

    ESI Racer's Edge Grips > Components > Handlebars and Stems > Grips | Jenson USA Online Bike Shop

    I like the Ergon grips but wanted green so I'll give these a try

    BTW: Also looked at the ODI and Race Face on the Jenson site but for the price figured I'd give the ESI a try.

    I just put some green ESI Chunky grips on Goblin. I wish they made the Extra Chunky in green.

    Here are a couple of shots. Not works of art but I'm hot and tired. Yard work in the nice 86 degree Fl. heat. Oh yes a bit humid as well.

    When the whole bike is done I'll take some quality shots.

    I know duplicate shots. Don't ask. Check out the larger files for better detail.

    And yes, i know the Goblin needs a bath.

    Moving right along:

    Brake lines came in the mail yesterday. Changing them out was far easier than the shift cables.

    Unfortunately the Avid bleed kit and green grips dont arrive until Tues. So the lines are all in and I'll post final pics when i bleed brakes and do up the grips.

    Don't want to get carried away but saw some nice green bottle cages on Jenson.

    When will it ever end ??

    That slips over the cable housing along the head tube. Stops rubbing on frame. At least that is what I used it for.

    Here is a pic

    So when are the green bottle cages going on. You are hooked. No it will never end. Just when you think so, here comes something else. Bike looks great. Congrats dude. You did a bang up job. So when you opening a shop. lol. You are a regular bike wrench now!
