Hi,

What do you think of my new build?

Comments welcome.

E.G. I reckon the stem is too long and I may put some other forks on it say AMPs or rigid Pace or something. Any suggestions on fork choice most welcome.

Keep the Girvins and maybe swap the stem, but I would trim an inch or two off the brake cables! Could be a bit sketchy on the initial ride :wink:

Thanx for the comments chaps.

I think for now I'm going to ride with the Girvins and see how they go then get me some AMPs or something later to make it look more sleek.

Hi Dean,

it looks good, i think the all over look of the front end looks a bit weird, not because of the Girvins but bacause of the stem.
You will see that by replacing it by a normal straight Control Tech stem and bar if would look pefect.
Also i would replace the seat by a slimmer one, like flight.

but you got yourself something really nice overthere 8)
