nice setup... except the stem and the susp fork.


Coming from you sir, this is more than a compliment. Thank you.
Well, this Litespeed Ti stem is the original that came with the bike, so i will keep it. Wouldn't mind finding a rigid fork to replace the RockS though, could order a Steve Potts Type II, with a black crown (as on Bushpig's Newsboy/MTBR thread, where you have shown all 3 sizes, S,M & L, of the Newsboys-my compliments). The seat post (originally Ritchey) should be replaced. Any suggestions will be appreciated.


I agree with this ugly judy. If you really want a front suspension, why not keeping the RS1 on it ?
On other hand,and for waiting a StevePotts, you could replace it by an unicrown black cromo fork like a ritchey force :wink:
