Just picked up this clean and tidy Giant ATX 980.

All seems good, needs a clean and polish but should build into a tidy machine.

Going to plug a set of Indy C's I have lying about, and a Mavic wheelset. The rest, I dont know yet :?

Indy C's are too old for that frame. You need some Judys

I think they're a bit wimpy for that....Giant often came with RST Mozo Pro forks, a good simple robust fork........which I may have a spare set of :wink:
