immaculate parts and build but too much alloy at front end .
try black stem and bars it would visually lower the look of the bike

The forks look cool :) I like them on this bike.... although they obviously didn't come on it new.

Yes seeing STS actually... They may have to go in the loft with an STS frame being added to the wishlist... :D

Thanks for all your opinions guys... think we will be going back to the previous set up...

Yes, yes and yes! Looks spot on at that, hate the idea of going backwards but it's a real looker and they suit perfectly 8)

That said - don't listen to my/anyone else's opinion if you love the triples. Another project never does any harm though* :wink:

Think I was just bit bored yesterday afternoon!

I knew in my heart of hearts they looked wrong... Always got one project or another on the go... Sometimes I even finish them!

:D :D
