If it still has the Innova tyres they are worth replacing, great for gravel tracks, pretty hopeless in mud....

The Voodoo's have some great components for the price, the stem is really light for example.

That looks great; I love the colour of those.

I'm a bit wary of mounting a pump to the frame; it always seems to get full of grit and rust from the inside out and not work when you need it.

Pump is always better off in your bag... Sack the water bottle and get a camelbak :)

You'd be surprised at how quickly your pump will get rusty being exposed to the elements though... Camelback is safer than a water bottle too... No fiddling about being distracted trying to get the water bottle out/in during riding and some spinal protection for if you fall...

Think about it, Get the Camelback, Everyone likes buying new bike related gear lol.

I use a camelback for tools and spare layers, and a water bottle cause I find it more handy for shorter rides!

Personally not a fan of water bottles anymore, Too distracting for my liking.

Haha only fun if you have the money and for a paperboy that is quite scarce! I have taken off the pump (thanks for the hads up). I might get a camelback in the future but for now i will stick with my rather sexy water bottle ;)
