yea i have a blue ringle quill, but its 135mm and it looks to long, so i opted to put the shorter black ringle back on.... they are 1" quills so with the thinner headtube they do tend to look a little "spindley" !!!
what colour and what sort of stem do you guys reakon would look better ?
i thought the black stem picked up the forks and the saddle quite nicely :lol:

maxtherotti........... yea you are right well spotted !! :lol:
