They look nice, especially on the WCF.

What's the length a-c? they look long-ish and do they work well?

Did it take you long to find them?

Cheers

ps. wanna buy some original DBR Axis TT Pro decals? ;)

Looks good with the pace forks on their wadsy but might look better with the FSX :D either way a lovely machine and incidentally also the very first Ti hardtail I saw and lusted after

98% there :wink:

Trim the steerer down = 99%

Fit some L bar ends = 100% 8)

All can be sorted :) I have a set of bar ends I was thinking of trying, you think they're the 'finishing touch' ? :wink:

Very classy build - the Pace forks look much better 8)

As Pickle says though, cut the steerer & lose the black spacers :wink:

Yes, I do, totally :lol:

Without flattering Kev (MadCowKev) too much, I think the front end of his DBR looked spot on. Low ride height and L bar ends suit the build.

Wow. Its nice to see so many DBR's in one place. My friend back then, Duncan Jameson rode a TT as a semi sponsored Diamond Back Uk rider. Such a nice bike I really lusted after one & my Apex by comparison seemed awfull.
