Otherwise I always thought they suited a steel frame - something like a salsa or a goat.

Uhm... are those decals replacement ones or something by any chance? Because mine also has these decals, but I have a whole line saying "Paul Turner design" and "U.S. PAT. No. 4,971,344" below the "ROCK SHOX" purple stickers.

PS: Still trying to decide if I should put this RS-1 on my KLEIN Rascal (it'll be a white/black frame with black and silver parts) or a Tange SwitchBlades. Going for the RS-1 would probably mean getting rid of the decals, because they're purple... so if yours are replacement decals, where could I get them?

Ah yes the trek 8900, that was a nice bike - I had to settle for the 8700 - the poorer brother :( without those forks and the extra class kit :cry:

Yeah, replacements, was some proper ones on ebay.com but the guy wanted summat like $25 each :shock: , I got mine from here via another member who had a spare set.

Yry Gil_m, he should be able to set you up with some like mine :wink:
