    Looks Great

    I have the same setup and have been riding the hell out of it. your front cable routing could use a little tweaking though, cable would be safer tucked to the inside of your fork.http://bluecollarmtb.com/2007/05/23/...ehose-routing/
    Have fun

    looks good, but you ran your front brake cable wrong it should sip tie to the arch then run through the inside
