not sure about the blue forks unless you are going to have one or two other blue bits on it - however it's a nice bike and a good weight - I like :D

Cheers Ed :? Everytime I look at the bike now the forks stick out like a giant carbunkle.lol. I have access to a set of Girvins but if i'm honest i don't really like the look of them. Ideally I want something that is going to blend in with the frame, but what? Opinions please.
