Thanks. I like the Manitous on yours.

Have not see many Arrowheads at all around...

It is a very nice comfortable ride and light with the 6061 frame.

Here is a better picture....

Doesnt look too bad, too much yellow maybe....

Judys ride really well. I have two of them and have rebuilt both with springs. This one is the original 63mm and sometimes that struggles and the other one I have has the long travel kit in them (80mm).

I picked up a really good set of original SID forks (1998), so I'm looking forward to seeing how they ride....
