    Basic FAIL

    Nice bike. How bloody tall are you though?

    I’m with WCA – the shed’s a disgrace. 😉

    Nice bike. Can you bear to get it dirty, though? That bad boy’s gleaming.

    The shed is on the ‘to do’ list…honest!
    @iolo: 5’11 but not got the seat right yet. Might be a tad high..
    @camo: Off to North Wales this weekend to do Beyws/Coed/Antur so it’ll probably get ruined. It’s amazing the difference a bit of Autoglym does to the finish 😉

    Very nice too, what chainring is that? I want to 1*10 with my XT crank set but wasn’t sure what ring to use without a device?

    Wouldn’t be my choice of pedal on a bike like that, but otherwise ace!

    I’ve been through a few bikes over the years and, last year, got to buy a frame I’ve wanted for ages. Made a few upgrades lately and I finally think I’m done (apart from, maybe, a new rear shock).
    Just added the last upgrade in the form of a KS Lev…
    What do you reckon?

    In addition to all the above the saddle doesn’t match and your chain stay protector is a bit squiffy!

    Spuds fine on any bike if you are a competent rider.

    @timbo: it’s a RaceFace Narrow/wide 30T and is brilliant.
    @Captain: I’ve ridden spd’s ever since they came out and don’t feel safe on anything else..
    @shortcut: yeah, saddle doesn’t match but is very comfy. Was thinking about changing it but…I like it 😉
    Hadn’t noticed the chainstay protector, will sort that..

    Carex pendula in the top pic? Hateful grass, needs nukeing.

    Why white cables rather than red (or black)?

    The grass does need a hack. White cable as it’s a Gore ride-on and was a bargain..

    @the purist: Grass now gone..needed an axe to cut it out!! Looks much better without it there and there must’ve been 40 or 50 seedlings.. 👿

    Lovely! apart from the dropper and the white cables, very nice indeed.

    Good work – but I’ll bet you 5 English pounds that you’ll still be pulling seedlings out long after you’ve changed your new bike for something even redder and shinier (and without white cables 😉 )

    ^ no doubt..

    I guess the white cable is a no-no then..jees, you lot are a bit pinickety 😉
