    Mine probably need a slight trim. Work fine, so just ride.
    Just stuck some new tyres on my road bike lastnight. Didnt even look at lining them up. Back one, the logo is within the wheels logo. The front is overlapping. Who cares haha.

    I’m clearly on the wrong forum? what have you done with STW?

    A friends 5 – (the forks haven’t 360’d) he just cant be bothered sorting the hoses.

    What’s the fashion police’s punishment?

    He won’t die. Well, not because his brakes won’t work. But he deserves to be put through every Circle of Hell and tortured by Satan himself for crimes against bike taste.

    It is simply wrong. He is dead to me.

    Is it just me, or is the hose routing not the biggest problem with that bike?

    If you’d only posted the second picture you wouldn’t be able to see much if anything wa wrong. It would be hard to photgraph with the wheel fitted too

    Either removing the caliper or lever to remedy this would take minutes.. to be fair the rockshox factory cable routing isn’t that much better

    Short socks? Was this taken in 1994?

    Cables/hoses look like that on all my bikes .I tidy them all up with a cable tie. 🙂

    The front wheel is removed because I was pointing out to him just how knackered the bearings are and the reason for the wheel wobbling!

    The brake levers trapped my remaining fingers as the pads are worn out/brake needs bleeding and the lever touches the bars nearly.

    The bike is a shed. Yet he’s more than happy on it.

    Dont get me started on his fashion sense (matching tee short to handlebars)….

    In fact STW has confirmed what I was thinking and its time he’s off the ‘mates list’ and placed about half down the ‘acquaintance list’.

    That’s the important bit, in my mind. As long as it doesn’t squeak. Or creak. Or rattle.

    I like it, its like a water slide, all the brake fluid going “Weeeeeeee” when ever the lever is pulled. We should all do it and give our dit4 some joy!

    Doesn’t squeak creak or rattle, its a bloody Orange of course it does.

    Aligned logos help you locate invisible puncture-causing thorns with the tyre off. That’s my justification for being completely OCD.

    I may actually do that with my Five to stop the brake pipe rubbing on the stanchion too. 😀

    I ran my front hose like that for a while on my M4’s purely because I couldn’t be arsed shortening the hose. Got the LBS to do it eventually.

    I thought things were supposed to be neatly ordered in a filing cabinet?

    Mines just like that, don’t want to shorten the hoses as whoever I sell them too might want the extra length
    they will get sold as soon as I convince myself actually being able to stop is better than having British made stuff
