Not much to report

All bushes greased and tight enough

Bombers serviced

Still deciding if you run triple rings up front or back to original AC crank etc :?

Quality forks... Bombers live forever!

My LTS DH is progressing slowly -

Clockwork build all go, picking up bits for the LTS as I meet them.

Just bought a shock for the back - Fox for a schwinn, gonna try and thread a trunnion mount on it...
