I hadn't noticed the non Manitou stem until I read about it, which I think is a testament to how well the blue Ringle stem wotrks on that build.

May go for blue chainrings and i'm getting the blue bar plugs mentioned but that'd be about it, some Manitou's end up overdone IMHO

Speed springs should be on their way from the States hopefully :D

These ones here

I still reckon these are one of the best looking full suss bikes period, and this is an extremely beautiful, not over done in the least example :D

Cheers mate :wink: , may not be the best working FS bike but they are stunning to look at, wanted one ever since i seen one in a bike shop called Dales in Glasgow in 94, the price was £2450 just for the frame though :shock:, never thought i'd own one and forgot all about it till i joined this site just over a year ago :D
