It's been a hectic couple of days for me, starting work full time has meant that i haven't had much time to do, well anything! But avoiding the topic of full time employment for a minute the best thing has happened in a very long time to me! Georgina's wheels have turned up! in all there glory! After a quick strip down and clean up they where on her! BY GOD THEY LOOK GOOD!!!!! Also i should mention i have been out for a quick ride on them and they feel even better than they look :D so i decided i would include a few snaps for you lucky guys to look at! :L enjoy!
here's the front wheel, Its a Trialtech Sport disc hub in white on a Echo TR Rim in turquoise although its more metallic blue if you ask me! laced with SAPIM spokes :D
Here is the rear wheel, again its a Trialtech sport hub in white but its a non disc hub. The rim again is a Echo TR in turquoise, all laced with SAPIM spokes by the wonderful people at www.Tartybikes.co.uk
so here is a few shots of Georgina before the new rims...
Like i said before i stripped her down, back to bare frame, i had to do it inside as the Great British summer has taken over this week!
i stripped the wheels down, took the tires of the rims and put them and the inner tubes back onto the new wheels, don't the already look amazing?!
so here she is! Georgina the final edition WOW!
Also got to fit my new 4Jeri chain tensioner
Amazing Trialtech front hub, which looks sick!
The front end looks sick! The Maxxis High Rollers looks much bigger than they did on the old wheels
The same goes for the back wheel! FAT TIRE XD
I like to think the Blue rims suit the the silver frame!
The white hubs match the white bars and grips and tie the whole colour scheme of the bike together a treat!
My white Funn Fatboy handlebars mated with a sweet B'Twin comp stem looks the dogs!
My new favorite grips of all time! My Sunline V1 Loc-ons :)

Stem: B'Twin Comp
Handle Bars: Funn Fatboy (white)

oh and on a serious note a bike was stolen today at poole train station, it was locked up and the thieving bastards cut through my lock and took the bike! the bike in question is a Specialized XC comp, the only noticeable feature is the bright orange DMR V8 pedals! oh and the fact i have the saddle here at home, so if you see some dick riding around on this Specialized notify the police as it had been reported stolen! some people ay?!
any way hate to end it on a sour note!
