Just heated up bread.

Toast is cool as well (or some chickens for breakfast).

I take it you use Hope adapter? If not, get some or you won't have your Zee on the rear for long.

I don't think I'd ride without a hope adaptor on the back of any trials bike haha! They are nice n' strong. Only reason I have a shimano one on the front is because it was free, and front brakes aren't as much issues when shimano 203 adaptors (not hollow ones) are strong enough as it is anyway :)

 

Even if they did break I'm getting Maguras at the end of the month because instead of £590 I get them for about £270 ish LEL

I got the 810 Saints for 100. :) I ran the MT5s (same as the MT7s expect for the lever) and wasn't happy with them. The perform very well but I hate it when the rotor rubs on the pads and since the gap is so small, this happens very quick.

Maguras are a tad harder to set up arent they, always found that building bikes at work compared to shimano stuff. End of the day to get the best performing brake, you need that super accurate tiny gap so the pads hit the rotor square, and at exactly the same time. nobody ever seems to have it which is fair enough because its a bitch to do. my saints are pretty damn good at the moment.

The MT5/7 perform perfectly. Don't get me wrong. I wasn't able to fault my brakes even with only a 180mm rotor on the rear (Trialtech pads). It's just that I hate rubbing rotors. You don't actually notice it that much but I do, and if you do happen to hit your rotor, it becomes really annoying. Saints are so much butter in this aspect. As for the lever... that's just personal preference. I like the 810 more than the MTs. The 820 are crap though which makes Magura the only good choice nowadays as the 810 won't have a revival. :(

Sorry to post again but on the subject of Skye's, my friend George went full on, full stealth. He doesn't have TF so I'll post on his behalf. IMO this is insane -

The metallic blue looked terrible pretty quick, so decided to go back to silver. Rawed the handlebar and fork as well, painted the rims black!

Maybe this belongs in the off topic moto thread. Any Denizens here recognize this sticker? Should be good for riding at night! Didn't really like the 'flow' it's covering up.

It's off for track stand practicing. Kept bumping it due to exagerated overcorrections. :-/

How come your tyre logos line up and on other bikes they don't?

I wasn't referring to this. I know that Ali has tried lining them up properly but the logos are just off. Conti might have changed that in a newer batch.
