Thanks Guys! Spline72, It's sooo clean you almost don't want to muck it up,but thats what there for.
Nice bike also!! I got Lucky I found this bike on Ebay and picked it up for$800.00 with a cateye computer, and a nice indoor trainer. The guy who had it just didn't have the time to ride. The bike only had 74 mikes on it and they were road miles at that.

The Bike is a IDXC 2.0 2005

Yeah EBAY is the best, i got the NEW OLD STOCK frame from some guy in San Francisco and got it imported to the UK , i paid it for $500 dollars with the saddle and seat post,I got most of the components form EBAY too.

The only bits i paid full price for was the 2007 Rockshox Pike 454's , rear rim and spokes for the wheels ,Goodridge brake lines brake, Tires and a few other small bits like cables etc.

In total i think the whole bike cost me about £1300 INCLUDING LABOUR which i think is a real good price.

I was so gutted when i went to the shop to pick it up and went to leave and it was lashing it down with rain, i got it home and the spent several hour polishing it up the damage the rain had done and removing grease monkey fingerprints from it.

every time i walk past it in my hallway i give it a little stroke and a smile comes to my face!

Oh the joys of getting a new toy!


No good in rock gardens..

Nice rides guys.

Spline72 - not often I see LTS bikes around now - but the other day I saw a guy commuting on an STS. They must be pretty rare now.

yeah nice i am a big fan of the chrome
Its not chrome, its polished aluminium, i spent hours polishing to a mirror finish. i was going to get it annodised a light blue/ terquoise but the company who was going to do it were not 100% posotive they could maych it to the ringle blue i wanted.

i am still in 2 minds as to weather i should still get it done, i have found a company that said they could also add graphics during the annodising process and was thinking of getting white flames running down the top and downtube.

not sure wether i will do it but i keep wishing i had gone with it rather than bottleing out!
