Great looking bike. If I was fussy (which I'm not) I'd like a black seatpost to match the rest.

How are forks? Don't see many of them around.

No problem Chris, you're more than welcome to have a crack.

I'm of the same camp, Iv'e been trying to find an original seat post for ages, if anyone has one or sees one let me know.

I'm also swapping the silver V-Brakes for some black Avids.

As for the forks, I'm not a big suspension aficionado so I have no point of comparison, they bounce up and down and seem to dampen a little, that's the intention of suspension apparently ;-)

They look good......

ha ha, good point. I know you can get some bargains on modern ritchey posts at the moment, crc were selling them from £85 to £25 in 30.9mm which I guess this is? Just a thought.

Bike looks good, fsr is on the hitlist for some point in the future.

Think that's the same one! Will look good and save some weight. Absolute steal at that price.
