@Shogun:

yeahhh... I also love that bidon cage... I'm sorry, cant tell you the brand... But I'll take it off these days... Maybe there is a brand name anywhere.

I have one question, guys...

Enter this bike into one of the Bike-of-the-month contest. Plenty of GT-fans here who appreciate true beauty! :D

That is very nice, lucky find!

I prefer the stem 'upright'. Bitd I would have said lower, but it just looks more natural in the higher position & I bet it feels better on your vertibrae like it is...

I think that "what do you think" doesn´t matter. Install the stem in that position that enables you to ride this bike in a comfortable way.


...oh and get some cages for the XT pedals. They´re not meant to be ridden with shoes on both sides. One little detail that makes a truly p.c. bike. :wink:

Looks spot on in the latest pictures to me. Lovely bike and one I'd have no worries.
