I really like that longer lower look. It looks a little beefier too. I love the riding postion with those monster apes. I'd really like to ride that thing once.

Same as above.

I only bumped this thread in hopes someone else knows what he did with that damn overflow bottle. He is long gone.

Wear a kidney belt is my best recommendation to anyone that ride ground pounders (Hardtails). As for handling I dont think theres much of a difference myself, just hard on the back and kidneys.
