Thanks, guys! :) I will promise to do some nicer pics when the weather is nice again.

I thought about going Controltech on the stem but I prefer to have the parts from one brand. Using the first generation Cattleprod might improve the looks, as this stem is not as "fat". I have to get mine re-sprayed and new decals and then it will hopefully look like this:

Thanks guys! Hopefully I will find time this weekend to try out the Syncros forks.

I was able to order a 2Nut conversion set in black from Aspire Velotecht. Took them about a year to get them back in stock.

Love this, Black and Ti, but would have gone for a Black banded front Mech also, looks out of place in silver and clashes with he Ti frames tones.
Would love a XiZang, but didn't make them smaller than 16 (which is a 19 in other manufacturers sizes)

Maybe you should look for a 16inch. It is more like 17,5 inch standard.

I just installed the Syncros forks and they looks great! :D

I really like the slimness of the forks and the fact that they are parallel to the seat tube. And of course, they match the Syncros cranks/stem/seatpost/bar/bottom bracket.

The picture does not do it justice... :(

The 1st Generation Syncros Cattleprod is getting painted at the moment.

I also have a black Syncros seatpost. Shall I give that a go?
