I really like this, got the colour coding just right and the components are spot on too!

I agree with cyfa 99% - needs a black stem IMO

otherwise looks superb and bet it rides like a dream

how are the Sektor? are they solo air?

after looking at the picture i think a black stem would go nice with the fork crown.

i was considering a black thomsen. but can only get a 70mm with 0 degree rise. i normally have a bit of rise on my stems.

shouldnt upset things too much though.

will have a think about that one :)

the sektors are solo air. they are ok, but not in the same league as a fox. i managed to get them very cheap from merlin cycles. i had a fox 32 vanilla before the rockshox, but wanted something white. i couldnt warrant another £500 for a pair of foxs!!!

i normally have my suspension set up quite hard and they feel ok. they did tend to compress a little too much around berms and corners, so a bit more pressure and rebound sorted that out.

Thomson would look nice.

Or maybe a hope?

very nice, good work.

love those forks. I couldnt justify £800 odd pound for foxes, not when the rock shox were so cheap. maybe next year!!

now fitted with a black hope stem, and red hope bash ring.
