    Helius AM New Additions

    Added a few new additions to the AM so thought i'd post a few pics.

    Hope Tech V2 brakes
    Easton Flatboy pedals
    SDG FX Saddle
    12mm Rear Maxle
    Black Raceface Grips
    Chris King Steelset
    Hope new style QR seatclamp
    Also have some Mavic 823 rims on hope hubs on the way for days where i need a stronger wheelset + the added bonus of tubeless!
    The new Tech levers on the V2's are very sweet, i really like the feel of them! Hope say they have revised the caliper but to me it looks exactly the same as my moto V2's!





















    Cheers

    Derek

    you need to plan and put aside ... after a while it will be a reality ... fate is inevitable ...

    the boss is the hard bit ... dang ... i had to do a bit creative accounting ...

    I have enough money but its the wrong time of the year for me to spend nearly 2000 on a frame.Hopefully next year depending on how work is going.
    I will have one.The decision is a helius fr or am

    Nah the sticker has to stay, its my mates company and he provides all the fun and bling when it comes to me and my mates bikes!!! Least i can do is give him a bit of free advertising, plus it looks better in the flesh than in the pics, and anyway bikes for riding not for looking at he he he
