Thanks guys! Only one thing I want to change: the Rock Shox Mag crown/steerertube into a RS Mag 21 SL Ti crown/steerertube! Anyone who can help me with this?

It is so ugly it's awesome. When you start off with that green you kinda have to take it all the way. I like it.

The best looking bike for me! At least the most different from the "usual" concept of MTB...
The combo Mantis green and 3DV it's the perfect union!!!
To reach the perfect machine it would be great to find a Chris king in 3DV.
Some shots of mine...

Very nice collection you have! :-)

I will show you why next week! :-)
