I really like the frame but IMHO the wheels look ridiculous...

Well I gota be honest, I love the wheels, very light and feel ace to ride...

Well is it retro... a bit.. but only a bit.. the Interactive Frame/Fork is a lot more retro... but as with all my bikes there's a modern twist...

The Pace RC31 forks are amazing, They'll bust your wrists wide open on anything too consistently rutted, but acceleration is second to none!

08 X.0 Rear 08 XT front, XTR wheels, XTR & Avid Sl Ti brakes USE alien post.. and other new stuff gracing the what is a fantastic piece of retro history.. Sorry to the purists out there that think all should be as was.. I just can't help myself!

I feel your pain man.. but my bikes make me smile, laugh out loud sometimes... That's all that matters bud..

Sometimes karma is not sent out of the factory.. sometimes it needs to be created, nourished, bolted on using titanium fasteners..
