    i'm putting canti's on!!! damn with the disc's i'll update later with new pix if UPS ever decides to show up at the shop today!

    i want the bike to basically look like its from 1992 but with all sweet new stuff!

    eventually i'll be building either a downhill or or slopestyle bike. but thats completely different

    Calm down canti's are fine. Are you going to keep the tires non-aggressive?

    SB8's are a good, grippy tire. They suck in moisture, but they grip like an octopus on dry / hard trail.

    Nope -- same "Old School" here!
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"
