I do like these frames, nice and simple design.

Stem and bar not to my liking, but otherwise its nice.

I did have one not that long ago, an eBay purchase that sadly turned out to have a seized seatpost so I was stuffed and sold it on for peanuts.

Another will turn up at some point I'm sure..............

Beautiful! Much better with the yellow forks. What was the Astro 5 shock like on it? My only complaint with my Ground Control is the original shock is a bit ...meh.

Well, I bought the RST coil shock as a spare / for pics only duties, the bike is always fitted with the Risse, It´s sooooo plush, more tuneable and light than the RST.

Best regards.
