    Nice. 😉

    The Scott Foils in Westbrooks are unbelievable value for money, you wouldn’t go far wrong with one of them.

    Fulcrum Racing 3s – da bomb!! For a 16/21 spoke wheel, they’re bullet-proof.

    Yep, brakes are definitely shite. I’d heard that anything other than Sora wouldn’t work because of pull ratio or something. Yours obviously do though so I might get some 105s. (Pretty sure I’ve mentioned that subject before).

    The wheels look good. At 6’1″ and 15 stone, I think I’d need something with a few more spokes though. 😆

    The brakes are certainly keen and took a little getting used to.I put that down to the original brakes being so poor and how hard ya had to pull to make em do owt.the wheels are a cracking upgrade to my bike 😀

    Fantastic collection mate, they all look superb. I have similar with a five, on one evo, and a cube roadie, but now you have the yeti your collection blows mine out of the water 🙂
