Thanks GT.

I got my new fork yesterday and decided to fit it at around midnight. I was like a child with Star Wars lego.

Very kind words about my photography. I used a Canon 5D2 with 40mm STM lens and just the available light in a Tesco's car park.

Go and try taking some photos of your bike at night using just street lights. You will be amazed at the results you can get. Who needs a flash?!

Haha i know that feeling when you get new parts :D

Honestly i think that one of those photos, if not all of them, would get into a magazine. I say you should try photography maybe as a side job just taking photos for magazine companies.

Definitely would try that out one day. I need a bike worth taking good photos for first. lol!

The bike looks really unique with the colour scheme but not all in your face :) and also looks very high spec. Nice job! :)

Very nice.

I looked at both the 19Ti and the 18S when I was looking for frames, alas they do not make the big enoguh for me.

Nice to see you've put some proper forks back on your back, but those bars are still ugly

Those bars arent ugly, i too would prefer straight bars because they do look better but they arent ugly. They match the rest of the bike in my opinion. Gives it that more of a retro-ish look if you know what i mean. I love it when bikes dont have that "all in your face, new" look. :)

Thanks again GT, you are giving me ideas about my photography. I did try my hand at semi professional photography. Perhaps I will revisit it in a new light...with new light!
I swopped the bars over to a straight one...might switch back tommorow to the Goldfinger look!

Hi, Levi, thanks. I really did want to buy a 19 Ti but it was car money! How tall are you?

Yes Revell, I realised my foolish mistake by selling on my SIDS. I now realise that emergency braking is greatly assisted by a front suspension. Oh and the Fox is just beautifully made. Everyone should aspire and work towards one. Ok ok! I changed this bars this evening and went for a little test ride. Now I have some Easton EA70 at 635mm. Might try some wider ones, more experimenting...

Thanks Fat_homer, just mucking about with my new camera. I can highly recommend the Canon 40mm STM lens. Perfect as a DSLR biking backpack lens kit.

Sometimes it can get just all too technical with so many build variables. I'm done with all that, I just want to spin my wheels now!
