I'm not going with stickers this time (unless I can find some black chrome round GT's)... I think the down tube and stamped extended top tube tells enough.

Let me know what you think...

Great job. I am a big fan of CW pro bars, so any bike with these is OK in my book!

Thanks! I was thinking about getting them powder coated white but just couldn't pull the CW stickers off to do so. I know, take all the stickers off the bike but have to leave them on the bars, go figure...

Well, you might want to check the before picture again as the front Tuff has two broken "legs" and the rear bearings were totally shot. The GT stem went to a friend but I've seen many blue ones on eBay for sale...

Thanks!

Actually if the levers were just switched around they would be on right, with the nut/bolt on the underside.
