Yes, tis nice also. I might have some spare stickers if you are looking. The guy who I got mine off had some specially made and thay look dead on. He never fitted them and I hav'nt yet either but he gave me two sets. Basically they are the downtube GT stickers and the toptube Xizang stickers. Do you know what that welded on washer thingy is for on the back of the seatpost cause I don't!

Thanks for information about stickers. I'll be very grateful. I'll contact with you about details. Good point. I have no idea what a hell is that either. Probably know it only man who have designed frame. Older Xizang's has there welded mount for classic cantilever brakes. Maybe it is something similar but must be add on some kind adapter for cantilevers?
Its not for opening bottles with beer definitely (I've checked) :D
Cheers.
