Finally got my new bike... pics :)

Hey guys, Bike arived earlier today... and all i can say is, its amazing, a few little kinks that need sorting out, i think the pedal spindles are abit bent... But apart from that, the bike seems nice, havent had a chance to take the bike to the park or to the jumps yet... By the time i got the bike back and assembled it was dark..

Anyway, my new rig

Its a Diatech Anchor, dunno if they're very popular in America, its apparently the best budget disc brake under 100.... imo, just as good as the M4 on the back

I was thinking of actually removing the front brake, because lots of dirt jumpers and street riders remove them to enable them to do bar spins.... PLus it drags quite a bit... I dont think it's as good as my Magura though... The Rotor looks cheap and bulky, and imo, the magura has more bite and stopping power...

Anyway, got some more pics for you

Cant be assed to copy all the link so you can find them yourselves
