What a success! That's really a brilliant transformation, better than it was the day it was born I reckon, and that dark grey colour looks really classy.

The only thing I would say is do bear in mind that the 1993 frames were not 'suspension-adjusted', so the 80mm Suntour may be a bit long for it. If you could find/afford some Mag 21s or early Judy XC one day, you might find you prefer the handling with them - certainly that's what Joe intended! But then again, some people prefer a longer fork, it's all down to personal taste.

I've changed my mind and I'm going to put a p2 fork on.
A friend of mine gave his, along with a titanium stem a titec titanium handlebar.

The only problem here, (and Anthony i would like your input in this) is that the p2 are from a size 16 1993 explosif, so i could have a short steerer.

I have a judy XC that came with the bike but i think it's too far gone, the stem got fused with the steerer

And also have to mount the front cantilevers.

Almost everything is retro, only the middleburn crank is modern.
