That is spot on. 8) Reckon your right about the bars and brakes though. Set of rody's bars and stem and a pair of pauls moto's would be ace.

Thanks fellas.
Yup, the bars and stem are going to have to go. At the moment I am thinking
Oval Stem http://tinyurl.com/5yazcx which seems not too chunky or maybe
this Raceface for the same reasons http://tinyurl.com/4qbap2.
Bars...mmmm..25.4 with good rise...say 2" and wide, the way I like it. Maybe not to everyones taste but as it is the bike feels low up front..a bit too back painy for me. Maybe http://tinyurl.com/4k3e23
Can't afford Pauls brakes really...but I have a plan :idea: Some Mrazeks for sale somewhere.......whistle :roll: ..don't go trying to look for them now :lol:
Your input ideas suggestions are greatly appreciated.
:D

Gotta say I'm not so keen on the oval stuff. Great kit but for me represents hi tech tri kit and the guyzer should be more bohemian :? Does that make sense???

Yup, think you are right Kaiser. I'm going to concentrate on the brakes/levers and worry about the stem/bar combo later.

Never heard of Geyser before. What's the history behind them?

Really nice looking frame.

What ever happened to Guy Rogers? I met him a couple of times. Friend of a friend who used to own my tibolt who now works at Flow. Believe he only made about 30 frames. Any ideas? Hi if you're out there!

I really do like that frameset. So much so I did (or tried to) some digging about them. I found nothing - apart from a single ad for what I assume was your bike on STW?

Max tubing as well . If you decide to part with it put me on the list of interested parties. :shock:
