that is lovely!! :)

but to echo other comments that seat has got to go!!

think thats one of the original 'cog hogs' isnt it on the rear mech?

i run aivd rollamajigs on both my bikes with gears and they make shifting a lot smoother and nicer... highly recommended if you can find one!!

with respect to what letmetalktomark asked, she did bob when i had the Strato air rear shock, but i changed that to a RS deluxe and stuck a heavy duty spring on her, so 'bobbing' doesnt occur as much now! Im 13 1/2 stone and 6 ft 2, ive got a pair of (F@t B@a***) springs for the Pace forks so will be perfect then :)
