very nice! I like it a lot.

it looks like a WW build that would actually ride well!

how do you like the frame/fork combo?
I've been thinking about maybe getting an XTC frame/pace fork for racing.

The other day I was testing some changes to my fork on my lw xc racing bike and found an old whoop-tee-doo spot that I thought was gone. Of course the spot is not as good as it used to be and seemed to have been recently uncovered but with some technical sort of jumps at the top of the dry creek bed - not big bmx jumps or anything.

I had to tip toe around out of fear to mess up my 'up to weight limit' parts as well as my questionable fork rebuild BUT ANYWAY . . .

A bike like this would have been awesome!

Is there any trick to removing the Giant livery? I really like how the XTC has such clean lines that look great.

It really gets my creative bike build juices flowing! :lol:

the bike rides very smoothly. i have ridden the same frame w/ the non-ti pace fork and found that this fork rides even better. it is more stable and carves tighter. i have already taken it on a few good rides. it is trippy how easy it is to toss it around and jump it. i wanted to make sure that it is everyday rideable..
in order to strip the frame i first had it hand scraped off and then sanded and clear coated by a professional painter, however you can also use a stripper called STAR10 which speeds up the process and does not damage carbon fiber.
