I like the fact the seatpost is longer than the forks and you have bars that'll cause problems going down a tenfoot.

The grey tyres and matching yellow cables work well.
I'm also a sucker for Araya rims



Can a more modern rear shock be fitted to these ?

Be careful which shock you buy, the air shock I bought for it couldnt cope with the load the frame design generates despite 300 psi in it.

A very strong coil over might be ok.

One of these is still the only full susser I have ever tried. Have things moved on? Surely Mint wasn't wrong was he? I remember the round rings feeling biopace.

Your bike is the subject of my 2000th post!
