thwang instead of shortening your hoses why dont you sell/swap longer ones for shorter? i.e. like the steerer longer for shorter etc. :)

Great bike, I like it. For the forks to match the frame and a slight retro edge, you could try this:

What travel forks are you using on it, I am very tempted to order one, but would be wanting to use my 100-130mm Pace RC40's on it.

I prefer the Barry White to the colour options over any of those on the 456, which would be the logical pairing for such a fork.

They are very good quality and proper cut outs rather than square stickers. Not cheap but well worth the money IMO.

Hey Thwang,

How are you finding the bike :?:

Just invested in one myself and would be interested in a review.
