Finally Finished My Faith Rebuild... Sort Of

Postby SamKnight on Sun 1/Mar/09 2:13pm

So halfway through last year i got bored and decided to repaint my faith (Was previously dark blue), i ended up deciding on a flouro green colour scheme with white decals, but alas Giant can't sell me a sticker kit so my decidely average photoshop skills came out to design up a sticker set.

When the frame came back with the new paint and stickers,

I decided to make it a little lighter than stock, first up were the wheels, i ended up going with Atomlab pimplites on the Atomlab rear hub i already had and a novatech 20mm front.

Next up were the cranks, i found a set of gravity light's on here that a guy wanted to swap for my raceface evolve's, along with the cranks i ditched the old ali bashguard and put on a shiny white plastic one.
And then i decided i need more white on the bike so i talked to a few guy's at work and i got my bars and stem stripped and repainted.
Yesterday i got told i'm off for a week long trip somewhere up north where we'll be doing a lot of biking so finally i started the build up, all went to plan, off came the old x7 derailleur and on went an x0, pg990 cassette etc, as some smart bastards out there will notice i dont have a pimplite on the front, thats just due to the hasty build up and not having time to get one laced, and a few other things to get done soon are repaint the 66's white with a nice green sticker set courtesy of Ant. :thumbsup:

Yeah but if he did that, he wouldn't be able to make a complete dick out of himself in this thread.
