That is outstanding and I REALLY like the forks.

The Diabolo is a great riding bike and is loads of fun.

I find it useful to have a big box of 'spare' bits and bobs like that, I have been collecting this stuff for over 10 years so that probably helps.

It needs a shorter stem for me to be able to enjoy it, these things are looong, seat post is at the right height but 10mm off minimum insertion and the stem is only a 120 but it still feels stretched.
