By the way where did you get the natural coloured brake hoods? They look a treat.
I know that Tektro has made rubber hoods in the gum color like that in the past, but they've recently changed their hood design. Instead of the goblin-hat, old school pointy ones on JP's bike, they're sorta square-ish now. Like SRAM. Ugh.

I bet if you hunt around you can find some of the old school ones, though.

Pictures should be mandatory in this thread. Some of you must be the the kind of people who read Playboy for the articles.

With the plethora of camera enabled phones even a 1 Megapixel photo would do, well not really but giving the benefit of doubt

Am i the only one who hates the stickers on wheels. i like black wheels with a small sticker, not the huge ones that come on all the carbon stuff nowadays.
