It has a aggressive, yet sophisticated, look. I love that it looks rather streetfighter'd, you know? I have had a soft spot for this build for some time, it looks wrong yet right :).

Looks more like the MTB's in Detroit in DX Human Revolution to me!

Yes, do it mate !

On mine, I put Paul Motolite V-brake, in order to use 700c wheels with mtb frame and fork.

Magura would be more complicated to install on..

Waiting for your pics !
:P

Think i will do it. Just rolled the back wheel into the frame and its sitting on a stool in my sitting room, i'm just looking and thinking.. Pauls parts are very nice, not cheap and not to easy to get. Getting the maguras to fit should be ok on the forks and maybe make a support plate for the rear as per Gary Turners one. Single speed or gears is the big question?

As I see on your signature, like me you have enought bike to ride, so turn your STS to pure pleasure bike, and do it single !

I guess I am going to go against the consensus here. I have long been a fan of the STS. I have owned 3 of them and I still think they are one of the most beautiful frames ever built. Something about the machined aluminum and carbon speaks to me. But I have to say the bikes in this thread are horrid. I have no understanding of why anyone would ever put slicks on a full suspension mountain bike. I understand that you are going for a specific look but I don't find these appealing in the least.
