Good eye, that's lens distortion from the wide angle.

Probably been asked a heap, and potentially not exactly the right place to ask this..

But what grease are people using for their VPP? Preferably in the UK as I'd like to order a tube and not pay huge shippings costs. Got my eyes on a HILKA grease gun from Screwfix that has been recommended on another forum, but still unsure about what grease is safe to use

Any recommendations/experiences please!

Cheers

Waterproof marine grease. I don't the brand matters that much.

Yeah I have always just gone to the local auto supply store and got a tube of marine grease.

Sweet!!! Did you end up just buying a CC frame?

Yes, CC frame. Medium.

My Megatower V2

My new MT. Swapped all my parts from my previous bike and built up my other one as basically brand new (just need to sell it now).

I love this thing

Good looking bike! Post some more up if you get a chance, thing looks great with that Pistachio 38! Wish I would have gotten my hands on one when they came out, but I heard that there are some new colors coming relatively soon. You did exactly what I am planning to do with my current MT when my V2 decides to arrive. My V2 is supposed to show up tomorrow but I HIGHLY doubt it will show any time soon at this point...

Pistachio 38 looks awesome with that frame color!

What a beauty! The gum grips are a nice touch.

Might be the first frame I've actually felt the pistachio fox color looks good on

I worried about how they’d look. I’ve seen some blue bikes that they just don’t look good on. Luckily this is a darker blue and the logo matches nicely.
