    need to share my new steed piccies...

    its done, it's finally complete - my 2006 Flux is finished at last!

    had lot's of problems obtaining particular parts in the UK so the build spec changed slightly from my original thoughts (juicy carbons and OS easton stems don't seem to be available this side of the pond)









    will post up the spec's later, as today's ride in North Wales is cancelled due to poor weather

    but going to Spain next week

    i ordered these tyres from Germany as they aren't readily available in the UK, they have not been properly tested on the trail yet but first thoughts are that they are very fast, they roll well and particularly so because they are UST and feel as if they have a low rolling resistance, but i'm used to riding either continental verts UST or panaracer xc fire pro UST tyres

    nope its a reba team u-turn, still dialling it in, but it feels great so far

    the NN 2.1's feel fast, but i normally run wider or knobblier (is this a word?) tyres

    That is a really nice build - looks very light - do you know what it weighs?
