Thanks!
They're 100mm. I believe 20mm more than what would have been on the frame originally. I wouldn't go any longer though.

Can anyone recommend a good tyre combo in a 2.1? That's the largest I think I can safely get away with at the back for frame clearance. Maybe slightly wider at the front.
I'm a big fan of Maxxis but open to other brands.
I was going to go for reissue panaracer smoke and dart, but I've heard the build quality isn't that good?

Man that's a bit special. Love the combination of the green against the Z1 orange, and the white decals just pop, nice one! Where did you get the custom headtube badge done?

Cheers,

It was quite a while ago and I'm struggling to find my emails about it, but I think it was through headbadge.co.uk
I had to commission it specially and it took a long time but he was accommodating and can do pretty much anything you want... for a price.

The decals are actually more silver but the come out quite white in the photos. I don't mind though. I'm very pleased with them.

It's the same frame. The Z1 Duals now belong to Corey Gun on this forum

I've just cleaned up this wheelset and fitted the cassette to check all is well.
Mavic f519 rims on LX hubs. Sunrace 11-40T.
I also rediscovered I had this black Azonic handlebar too so I'm torn between this and the silver.

I haven't decided yet. It was going to be silver, but maybe black would go better with black bars. We'll see. Don't want to go overkill on the silver.

Ok, I'm going with a silver seatpost but I might need you guys to help me chose a suitable one. Needs to be 27.2.
Any suggestions before I just buy a system x or etc for cheap?
