nice bike chief. like the black stealthy look.
how do you like the seatpost? work on the trails?
i just look at the cabling and worry that pretty much anything could snag on that huge loop...

The seatpost is a life saver, its fantastic and worth every penny. I know what you mean about the cable...but to be honest, so far its not caught on anything!

Looking to tidy the bike up abit, what should i do?

Was thinking new plain black/white fork stickers and get rid of the blue anodizing on the rear shock and front forks, so the bike is just matt black with red ano?

May change the brakeset for a nicer black/grey set?

As for the seatpost cable, ive made a sleeve to keep it tighter to the frame!

sounds like tinkering for tinkerings sake. this aint a wall lady - get out and thrash it. replace when the bits fall off!
