i like the 'after'! looks great with the judys not raking it out, and back to rim brakes as opposed to disc.

whilst its a backawards step in tech, it just looks 'right'

the XT cranks suit it well also

Bet it handles better for it?

You've done a sterling job.

Cheers folks. I must admit 100mm bombers were too much but bike still rides ok-ish IMO. To be honest, I prefer on Zaskar 80mm forks instead of 63mm or maybe I need get used to racey low front end. It does handle well though.

very nice... gotta love the ink blue 8)

Is it safe to assume the Suntour shifters work perfectly with the Shimano groupset?
