:shock: wow, that looks stunning! good choice in putting on those black amp forks on that. looks really smart! 8)

only thing i'd consider changing on that is either go matching V brakes, or find a hanger and go all matching canti. from the looks of it, you got an older (XT?) STI shifter/brake lever combo setup on there, which will probably make the front V soft/mushy feeling.

may i ask what rims those are?

Stunning. 8)

I'd ditch the tyres and get something understated, light and cool on there.

Thats Lovely, i agree with everyone... 8)

Is it my eyes or is the clearance for that fork a bit close to the frame..? how do you find the Fork...?

If you ever want to move the fork on, could i have first dibs please... :wink:

Very gorgeous.
Looks like a page from Mountain Bike Action back in the day when we all used to droll over all the fab bikes like this one.
(and wish we could afford them!).
