Yh I mean why the hell not!

I mean to look down ones nose whilst ripping up loamy dirt just adds to the pazzazz of the paint job

Plus to keep up appearances of the tanwalls needs a curly tash like poirot ;-d

Tried the tash during Movember. Did not work well, wasn't allowed to cycle within 500m of a school zone.

7/10 for that Trek. There are only a few bikes skinwalls look good on. That computer should be on the stem.

9/10 I prefer the dark grey/black frame, but still like the blue.. Love the bike in general, looks like an amazing build.

Seriously though NiconJ

Only thing I’d change on your build is the tyres as Conti were never up to scratch
Except for the kick ass fro lightweight twister pros for extreme light xc

The "Der Kaiser" Projekt is the second best tire I have ridden so far. The best is the "Der Kaiser Apex 2020". I had it on the front but opted for the MM for the muddier conditions in Winter. As soon as it's Spring, I'll mount the Kaiser on the front again.

I don't understand you saying that Conti isn't up to scratch. I have tried Maxxis and Schalbe and always came back to Conti (ecept for the MM Apex 2.6 which is quite good).

As you can see in my profile pic, I had the grey HTLT and this time wanted something a bit more colorful. The dark MT looks awesome too!

That's just a personal preference thing anyhow.. I almost got the blue one myself but really love the black frame.. The tires are really a personal preference thing too. I've fallen in love with the assagai but have heard good things about the knobbier contis

Yeah man whatever you find works :-)

Just bitter experience being a Conti guineapig with aweful tread patterns of yesteryear

All day long.

Just like everything else TV's phones etc it starts out with companies sending their work to China and eventually they learn to make it themselves.
