    ... and if we just ... Little trick for silver SL owners

    Use fine grade like #0 or #00 steel wool to polish the laser-etched white S on the rear shock and reveal shiny silver underneath. You can also do this with the Spesh seatpost. Looks nice on silver SL's. Doesn't scratch the anodizing on the shock or post at all, the white is much softer.

    Stock '08 Expert with a few stickers removed. You can polish the S on the front hub, lettering on rocker, shock, seatpost and collar, basically any Spesh lettering because they laser-etch everything. Don't try it on the Avid lettering, not lasered. Now I'm going to give it Kelstrs' alignment and Slick Honey treatment.

    Nice and fancy! I should be getting the same set-up any day now, I placed an order for the 08 expert frame and fork and I can't wait to get it. And in leu of this thread, I might have to do the same as you have shown us. The silver looks pretty spiffy. Thanks for the pics

    warranty

    Yeah, somehow I think Spesh will get over it. If not, they are truly the worst bike company ever. It did cross my mind though.

    I thought the same thing about my XL when I first got it, and saw it sitting next to my wife's SM, but it's grown on me and now I think mine actually looks cooler!!

    Although, it does look considerably goofier with the 2.0 Ritchey SpeedMax pizza cutters on...
