looking sweet there mate - i like the forks and so much lighter than LG's

good to see shark bites on there - plenty of grip but :shock: watch out for the bite on the shins - they will take out a chunk :lol: - my choice of pedals - got them on my Pro Burner for riding

top work :wink:

I like em, really grippy but they do bite back. The 'standard' ones are a bit heavy. There was a load of these 'Pro' ones on ebay nos for £15 i think. Decided it was worth a punt, turns out they are half the weight of the standard ones :D
Forks had a black cast crown originally and the steerer was too short buy about 6mm :roll: . This one apparently came of some Ti Manitou suspension forks. Its cnc as opposed to cast and again about half the weight :D
Its got a 17 tooth freewheel on the back at the moment, i'm thinking 38 for the front or would 40 be better just for general tearing about on?
