It looks great Frank, a very tasteful build. I would expect it to handle better with a longer fork like the Mag 21 it was designed for though. I can't help wondering whether you've been seduced to that old too-short P2 by the little touch of yellow that goes so nicely with your colour scheme! A Mag 21 is a good colour too though.

guilty as charged! :oops: i think the black fork and stem with the yellow decals goes great with the frame. fork handles fine, even if the AC is shorter that it's supposed to be for the frame. don't think it's significant enough to make too much of a difference. ;)

don't have a mag21, so only other option is to see if i can fit the Marz XCR fork on with the LX canti brakes. and i believe it would be the proper year.

Gotta agree with you, the fork/stem combo looks great. Bike turned out nice, looks clean, just hard to accept a black Blizzard.
