Sorry mate but I don't really like it, but as long as you are happy with it that's all that matters. :(

I actually quite like that, old skool. I would change the back brake and take that thing out of the front wheel but thats it. Bet its good for street :(

I dont like the new lettering you've got, but it does look nice with the sus. Hope it rides well, I can imagine that frame suiting it. Im kinda pondering getting sus for my pashley but at the same time I know I wont ride it enough to justify the money spent :("

cheers for the comment chaps.

About the suspension thing, inititally i kepty swapping from these to rigids, and back again, and again, and agian, untill eventually i got fed up with moving the maggura, i just rode so much with the suspension i grew to love it. i have found.....

Front bumps = easier, the forks take the impact of a hard bump, yet you still get sprung up there!

Bunny hops / manuals = easier to get the front end up, and it also means, speedy streety landings can be back wheel first and not hurt!

In the end, i have not noticed any lack in performance, (i.e. hieght i can back wheel), i can still do everything i could, and more!

I'm now starting to ride ramp more, and am thinking of a higher gear for better streetness.

sorry about the essay..... but i'd highly recommend people try suspension for trials (for longer than 2mins, because it does take a few hours worth to get used to!!)

:(
