Finally got round to posting up my latest build it currently has flat bars on but as its going to be used properly off road I will switch them for risers once Haggis sends me them :-) I might possibly stick on the talas forks off the wifes bike seeing as she only pootles around on hers with her friend chatting about girls stuff.

Hope you like it

Its a 1997 and the forks are about 420mm A to C so I could run shox at short traval i guess. I will probably stick with rigid for a while though :-)
