Amazing, can't wait to see it built up 8) Liked it bare metal too, they can sometimes look awkward but it had a nice stance and burly look about it.

How much travel does the rear shock give? Does it feel balanced with the Girvin up front?

Going to look lovely complete!

The rear suspension didn't have more than 2 inches of travel. It had the problem of a lateral rigidity. The front of the bike is very stiff with the pepperoni fork. On other hand, the bike has to be ride as a no suspension bike. The suspension give only more confort.
But, it's a nice bike for trekking, not for races… :wink:

But, to have only a rear suspension it's not so crazy than only a suspension fork…
