As I said, only quality components: Turbo, T-bone, DX...
About everything Japanese, except for seat.
I am wondering why yours has a intergrated seatclamp, while mine has a seperate piece. Another year maybe? Don't know. The tubing decal looks different too. Does it say Tange MTB OS still?
I think that for if it has to be suspension, the Tange is a good match. Not in colour, but it is Tange (like the tubing or the original fork), it is Japanese and it is sturdier than most suspension forks I think. The whole bike can be considered extremely durable.
I do not really like the piece to protect the rear mech. On all my Panas I took it off. It is also a pretty heavy piece I can tell.
Nice bike, as I said.
