Due to the completion of the Karakoram, which I'll put some photos of up tomorrow, the E4 is no longer on commute duties.

I'd like to give her a make over, nothing major, just some bits and bob really.

I think I've already decided I'd like to up grade to Maguras and XTR and some nice gunsmoke hope bits like seat clamp and skewers.

Maybe a Pace stem (I've got a nice silver Ringle for swappsies if there's one out there :wink: )

What I really want is some suggestions on stems, seat posts and cranks etc.

All suggestions are welcomed though. :D

....Oh!; and if anyone's got any bits. :D

Oh by the way, she's already sporting new decals for frame and fork and she looks quite sexy.....which is why the thoughts on treating her for Christmas. :lol:

luckily for you, '98 was the year of bold primary colours - specifically red/orange/yellow... at least thats how I remember it, but probably down to the fact i was riding a red FSR with an orange swingarm, orange stem, half yellow tyres, orange flite, yellow cables, yellow grips...

I must have looked like a proper twit.
