    Have a look for 9007 aluminium grey - i've seen it done flat and metallic, never used it myself but the name came up when I was looking for a grey a while back.

    I don't think so - I remember the guy telling me he had asked the supplier to alter their stock colour as it was too gold or something, ESP in Glasgow did it - had a few frames done & they've all been spot on

    Cheers, it's a met bronze powder without the clear which came out satin - does almost look like a clear over raw finish now you mention it.

    I'm shite at wheelies, every now & again I hold one for longer than a few seconds and secretly feel like a badass - I'll crack it one day & then never try another one (balls, I'll do them everywhere)

    Had this out for a leisurely ride today - still not given it a proper big day out post refurb but it's great & I did a cracker of a wheelie that impressed the shit out of my 4 yr old daughter

    Now that's the sort of tyres people build a bike around - a bike with £150 mudguards no less!

    Good call, had forgotten about those - was there a natural successor in the Vittoria range or were they squeezed out by some gravel thing?

    Respect - international obsolete tyre stashes are what we all should aspire to :)

    I can relate - there's a 2 foot pile up my loft of various semi-worn tyres for every occasion, including a few 26" numbers I no longer have a bike for - although those will be perfect for a hypothetical neo retro mtb build for the wife i'll probably never get round to, so obviously they must be kept.

    I don't even know what the replacement is supposed to be - i've some 32s in good nick & a pair of more worn 35s - a work colleague bought a few pairs after I recommended them because they were cheap & he does about 100 miles a year, those will most likely be the last tyres he ever buys
