so tempted to get a Ti spring for the shock, just for bling value.

already has Ti springs in the fork and a few Ti bolts/washers.

took bike out for a thrash today, seen as i havent ridden her in a couple weeks.

this bike puts a grin on my face whenever i ride her, but i could do with some single crowns to unlock her potential.

anyone up to swap some 160-180mm, 20mm bolt thru single crowns fork my triples?
