I really wish I had kept mine, they are steller bikes but I never took it out after I switched to 29ers.
Yours looks great but I do agree that that looks like BIG gearing.:)

Very nice, that yellow is a wicked colour!

Gearing does look massive...must be good for 25/30mph on the flat!

the gearing is 42/16, really nice for urban/dirt roads but really not that useable for offroad

im having some problems whit the XTR brakes so fore the moment thy are swap for a set of red DX' while im looking for some nice avids, might be som ultimate or Ti' (i have a set of arch supreme but i think thy are a looking littel overkill)
