As much as I love my Surly KM, I agree about the front mech (mine is only 2mm off the tyre when on triple's granny ring)... and that Scandal is looking VERY pretty!! :D

Keewee, I've went for 100mm Rock Shox Reba's, got them from bikediscount.de if your looking for a bargain, I've also heard Merlin have a well priced pair as well. Still not running unfortunately, with christamas and the impending arrival of a bairn theres been no need or time to get it finished. In saying that my brakes have just been shipped and they are the final piece of the puzzle. Should be good to go in the next couple of weeks.

I love the scandal. I don't know why, but bare bikes just do it for me.
