Conchita after 6 months

After 6 months of riding with Conchita (2009 Vision Pursuit), I've been loving trailing too much... but of course banging the trails also result in parts breakage. There is of course the slight sumpong of upgradititis included, but not much... some of the replacements were hand-me-down from my father who got caught with the upgradititis virus, bigtime that is.

So how does she looks like now?

from a Pure White color scheme to a mix of White, Black and Ergon Green!

Conchita looks even more beautiful in Ergon Green accents.

So here's the breakdown of what got replaced and what was replaced.
from September 2009 up to the present

Marked in Red are broken parts and got replaced
While those marked in Blue are hand-me-downs
and marked in Green are parts that went to DIA and/or came from
