Those Reba's would be spot on for that frame if you still have them, unless you're going uber weight weenie, then I'd get some Sid's

Very nice bit of kit, what's the weight of the frame?

I'm acctually right in this moment setting up my xtc composite even with bb7's and a bloody skareb fork it is light!

I'm also going rigid quite soon, and I'm going xc riot with topmounts, 8speed and mechanical brakes, but I'm thinking of going hydraulic soon, will probarly try to find some xtr.

My first bike was a giant, and this is not my last but a really good one! gonna build my old 93 composite giant as a mtb/cx morph for thoose days just riding in the park...

Really interesting section this to see what retrobikers ride in their modern-spare-time, or for a living in some cases!

I bet thats fast/light as hell, won't weigh much. Appreciating the Giants at the mo after sniffing round the STP's for a while.
