I think the green tyres would work if you had a bit of green elsewhere.

Looks good though.

I agree with the green, i think this one became so great i can't destroy her as a winter bike...

So I'm gonna put a shorter stem and lower the seat on it, and give it to my girl, cause she will NEVER use it...

and then I can use my GT this autumn/winter and get a Cannondale or a Kona for the spring...

perfect!

the stem and the tires are replaced...

Went with a 90mm's stem, and some black WTB tires... looks great.

nah, the chain is just right. It's the original one, there is no wear on cogs or anything. Check the paint on the cranks... it probarly looks short cause of the gear it's in on the pic...
