@sam264 That is a wicked looking 223! Is that the original blue? Mine isn't a total retro build...especially at the moment...it is sporting a mono mini on the back and a saint mech, and proII with mavic 729 rims. But they will slowly be replaced as and when.
Speaking of wheels...what kind of wheels should I be looking for for this? Halo combats?
@heavyp Good advice on the shock...I wasn't going to get it done, but like you say...better sooner rather than later, be a shame to waste a good opportunity! As for the forks, once I have moved house I will certainly give them a clean...I put new oil in them 3 weeks ago...then decided to take the forks apart (just one leg) to see how they worked...the oil came out a very horid black colour...so a clean is in order for sure!
ps. Ae downhill stepdown...doesn't look too big...but it feels it when you stand at the top staring down at the landing! https://plus.google.com/107432443336709 ... vLZJ8NRME1
Mr O handled it like it was nothing!
