Okay, my Itchy Trigger Finger has landed me in trouble again.. I've bought a great pair of 98 SIDs.. However I don't have a bike that they'd fit.. So I have to buy another bike.. Right?

That's the logic that I have resolved myself to.. :cry:

Hahaha Okay, compose myself.. I was thinking about building up either a Tasty Titanium [Moots, Seven] or maybe Get That Fat..? Any thoughts suggestions?

Good question,

For some strange reason I always fely that that era Rock Shoks look best on thin tube (steel or Ti) GT's.

If you found a Xizang frame to hang them off that would be sweet! 8)

GT team replica perhaps...

...of course my money, real world, it would be the Fat. :D

IBIS, Slingshot or find a funky steel hand made thing!

Or find a Fat with a 1 1/8th headtube!

I think about 98, it still has the widget on the seat tube for the cable stop when using canti's
