Few Upgrades Since the Last Time I Posted

Hey everyone...just thought I would share a few upgrades that I've done to the Enduro.

Shimano DX Pedals (the nicest pedals I have ever ridden)
Chromag bars (thought I'd give the wide bar thing a try and...I like it)
Kenda Excavator tires (grip amazingly only issue is they don't really shed mud well)
Magura Louise BAT with 8" venti rotors front and rear (wow...just...wow)



















Got a wicked ride on all the stuff now and can say I would recomend all of it...especially the Louise BATs. They are insane. Hope you enjoy.

Now that's a nice setup right there.

How wide is your bar DT?

Hey now...its not that I ignore you guys...I don't actually own a computer anymore so don't really get a chance to log in much.

Oh and Gastro the bars are 26.5" right now...so pretty wide...might trim them a little more not sure really.

Thanks for the compliments guys.
