    That is nice. It’s the bike a lot of us should ride, not the marketing and image led bikes we do ride.

    WTF were you thinking? Bike not centred on garage door, non drive side shot, cranks not in line with seat tube!!!!!

    Enjoy it 🙂

    Tyre logos centered over valves: excellent.

    You do realise the correct way is valve in line but opposite logo? Those tyres are 180′ out.

    The valve logo alignment is fine, on the drive side the valves will be at the bottom while the tyre model will be proudly displayed at the top.

    Cranks level obs

    I have to admit, the angle of that seatstay brace bothers me slightly. That’s the worst thing I can say about it though. It’s still bloody lovely.

    Logos and valves should be photographed at 12, 3, or 6 o’clock positions. The same as each other, it should be said. The front wheel just scrapes into acceptability, but this only serves to emphasise the dramatic discordance of the rear logo languishing somewhere between 2 and 3 o’clock

    Cranks are correctly positioned at level, but you could also have levelled up the pedals or placed them whimsically/jauntily at 45 degrees.

    Other than that, 8)

    Mismatched calipers

    They’re Magura MT Trail, they’re meant to be “mis-matched” twin pot rear 4 pot up front.

    Yeah, was joking. Are they good? Never really tried Maguras

    😳

    Are they good?

    Been a long time user of Magura early on and used shimano more lately.

    Levers are nice on Magura brakes, nice contact area., I’ve never had a set of Magura leak, never boiled a set either.

    Nice modulation but I’ve not yet tried the Mt trails in earnest.

    Fan of saints too but I’ve had numerous leak on me and I’ve managed to boil a set, just, but it was OK after it rested.
