Beatiful Comp!

Now I see why they got away from the guitar style cable routing on the top tube. Makes for an odd bend for rear V-brake cables.

I still really like the guitar style though. Might have to trade my 1997 Comp in for something a little older.

I'm resurrecting this thread, looking for ideas and inspiration!

No pics at the moment, but this is currently single speed with riser bars and a kiddie seat on theback :oops:

I'm very seriously thinking about selling my parkpre and sticking with just this one. I don't ride much, especially off road, need space, and while very fond of the parkpre, I'm even more attached to this one.

I have some maguras, thumbies... Should I go sus or rigid on the front? I'm thinking rigid, but would be interested to know if a 45 or 50mm mag21 or similar would make it better, or make no noticeable difference at all...

Opinions of any kind are welcome!

Anyone want a parkpre pro elite?

Your bike looks amazingly neat but unfortunately i couldn't comment on the mags as i don't have any experience with them but i honestly enjoy rigid forks as they seem to have enough give in the metal for road use and country lanes but if i had the funds then i'd be looking round for a decent pair of Carbon fibre forks because their just as strong as steel but soak up the bumps better which helps reduce the feeling of fatigue in the hands when riding but at the end of the day it's all down to personal taste and experience ..

I have a bit of a thing for KHS bikes. I've currently got both a comp and team from 93 and 94. Out of the four bikes my favorite is the '94 comp, despite it being the heaviest.

Given the massive personal history you have with the bike I'd say you should do whatever you want with it, as long as you keep using it. Just keep anything big that you take off in case you change your mind later. A sus fork might just be the next chapter in it's history.
