good to see you got yourself a proper amp fork for that. also like the stem change as well. ;)

what Risse shock is that? would love to get one for my own Amplifier.


The Risse shock is an Elroy.... tuneble rebound... and air pressure of course...

I have one on mine to. A great improvement over the original spring/damper... and half the weight of the orignal (I guesstimated)

For me this is one of the most beautyful fullies I've ever seen.

I don't mind the red bar (and I also can overlook the strange stem :D ). All parts look great on that shiny slim frame. The only thing I would change is the seatpost, as one would expect a straight one on this bike....

congratulations to tis build.
