More Info:
My most recent project bike: A 1998 Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo, completely overhauled and repainted in Dupli-Color "Cast Iron Gray" spray paint. I had some of this paint left over from painting my Remington 870. Great color and great paint! I highly recommend it. I switched out the rapidfire 24 speed system for an older thumby 21 speed. I just love the old DX thumb shifters.

It's a 1-1/8" headset. I'm planning to swap it out soon for an anodized blue FSA Orbit. This 17" frame is a little small for me...if it was the next size up, it would be perfect! The triple butted True Temper steel is awesome and very lightweight.
