Sofar i changed the wheels, forks, brakes, handlebar and stem.
Still looking for a nice seatpost and crankset.

Enjoy,
Bart

Barto- Rad bike. But fix your goddamn seat! That angle is a travesty!

I had a logic fork in there, because i like to go rigid too, but it really kills the geometry. IMO too low at the front. I tried the the surly 1x1 (too fat) and the Salsa CroMoto (too straight line) and now i ordered a off-the-shelf steel fork, Suspension corrected for 80mm travel.

Still not sure about the paintjob...
