gotta give you a ten, as its the same as mine! The juicys are a real talkin point arent they?! people comment on them all the time! how dya get on with the standard crankset? i'm hating mine and cant wait to change it :( other then that, cracking ride! :)

B17Rida replied... on 18 February 2010

It is a shame about the brakes, i'm gunna try some different pads and see what happens, they were good to start with but they have gone downhill fast, i'll let you know how i get on when i get round to doing it! Yea, ill take a peek at the SLX cheers dude.

marinrider replied... on 18 February 2010

I have to agree with the crankset, i'm finding mine to flexy over the rough stuff, then again it is the bottom end of truvativ's components. Thinking along the lines of a Shimano SLX double to replace it, check it out its awesome for the money. AAnd yeh the juicys colour is great, shame they don't really perform how they look!
