    My bike... a month later (56k warning)

    I just felt like posting pics of my bike a month later after harsh riding lol, its a great bike, as you can see its still brand new but notable damage done to it are the grips which are very worn out, cranks' logo has been buffed out for some reason, a few chainring teeth have been flattened (my fault ), the frame and fork are hardly scratched (but it looks oh so good covered slightly in dry mud) and the derailleur is slightly scratched and the barrel adjuster is broken. Oh yeah you can also check out the new pedals I put onto it (the stock ones really suck). Pics are high resolution (1600x1200) jpeg, for some reason the derailleur picture uploaded with very very low quality.

    Your foot is rubbing on the crank when you pedal.

    I switched to Azonic Fusion magnesium pedals in black, they are great and I love them, definitely better than the VP pos that came stock. The grips will stay until they rip apart, no point in swapping them out.

    Yeah Siu now that you mention it, thats it lol.

    The derailleur is so so, but its probably because it came out of tune straight from day one, it is very resistant though and shifting is ok even when tuned right, I expected more, I'm definitely getting SRAM X9 eventually (or maybe the new 2007 X.7 when it comes out which is actually 2006 X.9 lol) but I'm not going to upgrade to a higher end Shimano part.
