    few new bits and pieces on my Seek
    went to my LBS and bought SRAM X7 components - medium cage rear derail derailleur and matching shifter. Shifting is about the same as it was with Shimano Deore components but medium cage derailleur made huge difference regarding chainslack. Very happy! Added some new Ergon's GS2 aswell...
    Next stop - carbon fork and new wheels.

    Carbon fork? What's wrong with the Thompson fork? The bike looks great as it is now.

    As realized before - we obviously have very very veeeery familiar taste in bikes (and components)

    It's not Thomson fork... It's original Giant fork (alu) with Thomson sticker on it

    Thanks!

    Yes change the fork. Carbon or steel will be more comfortable anything but alloy. Even concrete poles are better than alloy

    wrong, keep it the way it is.
    if he puts in on the other side of the fork and it gets knocked in THEN he will have problems, as it is if it happens to get knocked in the spokes will hit it back out as oppsed to smashing into it.

    Thanks. BTW, when I balanced it on that small bridge (hence the crank angle) I was praying no wind would come while I got my phone's camera ready. If it fell I can tell you there would have been some swearing going on.

    My wife already thinks I'm such a bike nut for calling bikes Hot, Smoking, etc...I better not start saying sexy!

    Here's mine just back from hauling a bottle of wine and a 12 pak with my new Wald 137...think I found the perfect basket.
