Looks great, love the bars. I think the p2 will look nice on there, but I also love p2 forks so I may be biased. Never tried having a steerer extended, any negatives to doing that? Especially if you're 300 pounds like I am?


The new section of steerer has been TIG-welded on, with the welds penetrating the walls all the way round.

You can do chin-ups off the end all day.

This is now getting new frame & fork and some needlessly bling bits.

Had to admit to myself that the British Eagle is a tad too small...

New-old-stock 1991 Stumpjumper Comp, Tange Prestige in a lovely matte pearl powder blue.
