Changed to Halo Twin Rail 2.2 pink and white tyres, Schrader valved tubes (drilled valve hole 1.5mm larger in the DT Swiss SSD44 17mm rims) and translucent green pedals. Purchased in near-new condition identical to stock photo below.
Life completes a full circle, this is my 2nd hardtail MTB 15 years since my first own bicycle choice/purchase. Back then it was a Giant Iguana SE with Rock Shox front and toe cage pedals. A great departure now from the silver, grey, grey and black colour schemes of 1997.
