nice.

My favourite decal set.. 8)

Only thing I'd change, personaly, is the tyres. A nice set of smoke/dart or Ritchey Zmax Amberwalls.

Other than that it's perfectly well balanced as it is.

That was the idea kinda. Same for the stem. Shake the bones a bit less :)

That stem's the original GT tho isn't it?

maybe hunt out some threaded sus forks, like RockShox MAG21's (and keep the stem) to soften the blows of the rigid front end a bit?

No point in lowering the stem apart from for looks. At the end of the day comfy and ridable are better than pretty.

Yeah. been looking at forks on ebay. Still getting a feel for it.

Did they come with a lockout?
