    Hi yoshi or N30, what ever you prefer :p who do you use to fit your tyres? I know a guy who is very reasonable on price if you're interested. I know he does a few things with race bikes too so he might be experienced in fitting with carbon fibre wheels? Just a thought.

    I use a bloke called Martin, He's a mobile tyre fitter and does all my work for me. I don't have to lift a finger or even leave the house lol

    Big apologies again, These are just pictured after pulling out of the shed, it needs a major clean and polish, The project still has work to do, Titanium disc replacements, Carbon undertray, Carbon Clock support, Gilles chain adjusters, Gilles Titanium locking nut, Factory Pro velocity stacks still to come, and a **** load more.#

    Also after fitting the wheels I decided to carry on the black/white theme, sprayed the Talon sprocket black, and used Silkolene white lube on the chain.

    Just found the old photoshop I made in Feb 2009, This is what I was aiming for.... ALL The black bits being Carbon, and the white bits white....

    Not too far off from my predictions TBH.

    Original bike in 2008 when I got it.

    Yup, I agree with a few others:D
    First I was "nooooo"
    Then it was "hmmmm"
    And now it's "mmmmm"

    Except for the Cat n Fiddle sticker:p

    I don't like the black and white look. The PS you did looks much better and the red breaks it up nicely.

    It needs some colour.
