Nice looking bike - what year is the frame? Looks like a 98 or 99. What travel are the forks - they look a bit longer than the 80mm that the originals had.
I've just taken delivery of a 2000 model frame which is waiting to be built up over the weekend. :D

i see that you too went a little crazy with the electrical tape on this build! I found myself putting it all over my most recent build in the exact same spots. A tip to you is to go to a good hardware store. they tend to have many colors of electrical tape and i found one that almost matched my frame perfectly! that way i got the cheap protection of the tape but you have to look hard to see it. check it out i think you will like the results.
