And here we go again! :lol:

This time its for my daughter Jade 8)

The base is a GT Arrowhead of 97/98 era. I have so far plugged in a pair of Rock Shox Indy C, but may change these for some Quadra 21R's I have on the way. Also fitted is a GT seatpost, bar and stem, Massi saddle and Bontrager bar ends. More bits are on there way :wink:

I have a few people to thank:
Xizang - frame and 'bits'
MAXTHEROTTI - seatpost and bar
Spitoon - wheels and 'bits'

Cheers guys 8)

I have to be honest, the quadras suck. Stick with the indys, that arrowhead is to new to have quadras anyways. That indy seems to be a longtravel unit to, For a lightweight rider thoose fork work just fine.

the frame is in a nice colour! should be the same frame as any GT alu sub Zaskar Le so this will be a great xc youth racer!

That's going to be cool. :D

I love the "Can I go back in the warm now please dad?" look as well.

I need to sort something out for my lad soon.....I'm feeling inspired now. 8)
