Deluxe Front End Update

I have been sweating the front end on my trail bike for some time now. Having all that extra steerer tube sticking out was getting a little old to look at, not to mention the chances of having it rip me wide open. Well I finally picked up a guide to cut it down and decrease my stack height. I actually like my front ends a little lower, and the addition of the 2.125 Comp III on the front makes this bike ride like a dream. Even more now that the stem height is were I like it.

Before shots.

And after.

And here it is with it's seatpost flying in the wind.
