Looks great that. Good choice of forks for it too, they really suit it.

Think I'd change the bars though.

Nice work. I know what you mean about the decals, don't look quite 'right'.
Cracking bike though, and I like the bars :lol:

The bike was unrideable with Joyce's stickers on it. :lol: Sourced some OEM GT stickers, and now it's presentable. Threw on the NOS Rock Shox suspension post I had in the parts rack as well. It really helps take the hit off riding an aluminum frame.
