Rocky the Purple Monster!

Postby Purple Monsta » Thu Nov 01, 2012 08:25 am

I am Rocky and I am a bit of a tart!

I was only built in the summer but I have already caught plenty of eyes particularly when I flashed my wheels whilst popping my trail cherry in Glentress. Berm Baby Berm!!

Ooh I like the sound of a purple seatpost. It has to match the rest of me though! Can't have different shades of purple :shock:

Any ideas on where to start looking?

I presume you're Trolling but just in case you're not, you might want to look at everything else that Superstar sell, your purple seatpost is available from them, along with some purple flat pedals, purple saddle, purple stem and probably even a purple headed womb flute if you looked hard enough...

Not really my cup of tea but buy everything! everyone would certainly see you coming

I think tasteful purple is better - I like the black and purple. Stands out without being OTT.

    this... though i wouldn't go overboard, purple post with black saddle or visa versa, you need to have some contrast :wink:

Heh snap! Although I have even more purple than you I think!!

Instead of a purple seat post I went for a purple seat!

My wheels are XC 430. Used for general trail riding and hopping about :-)

I like the purple pedals but not so sure on the saddle. Still - at least it's purple!!

p.s. yes - helmet is purple!
