Beautiful scenery. 
I thought the first 3 shots were the same picture at three zoom settings.

cheers ryan, now this isnt the most expensive bike ive owned over all these years, but other than a few things i need to change like the forks and a longer seat post im pretty happy with it, i did think the brakes would be a issue but after todays ride they seem more run in, i will strip its paint but the end of this year and go black  :D another bad colour with mud but i like black and not had many black bikes,  :tu:

hmm nice, i will see, my friend does powder coating and another does decals so should be able to jazz it up a bit, i was thinking more stealth, black paint satin, and a different black for the decals,  :-\

i would love to try the Rohloff Speedhub gears, but the price  :o but for off road i bet they would work better overall, i nearly tore my rear derailleur off on a stump a few months back, so hubs woud be better for this,

and your not wrong mike , just me a few dog walkers and nothing for miles   :ahhh

The Rolhoff's only really work out reasonable if you buy them with a bike like a Thorn :)

Otherwise there just crazy money :-\
