Nice ride.

I've always thought that those bottle mounts on the underside of the downtube are in the craziest place. Imagine if your local trail is used by dogs as well (as it probably is)? :shock:

But where else do you put a cage on small frames?

Hi,

I was wondering if you could help, I've just bought my 'Beast of the East' which I'm renovating. I'm pretty much a novice, but could someone tell me what suspension forks will fit it, as I have the Peporoni forks as standard, but I'd like the Shocktek that Zed has, or similar, can anyone tell me where I'd get some. Also what bar stem is on Zed's?

Many thanks for your help.


Steve :lol: [/b]

Wow, you've done a great job,....looks stunning. I'll sort some pics out in the next couple of days, these will be before and after pics as I've not started working on the beast yet.
I bought it off a mate, who'd owned it from new, and has never changed anything, it's in good condition too, as he's always looked after it.
Thanks for the info on the stem..I'll check out Ebay and see if I can find one.

Cheers

Steve :D
