Yeah, it's difficult to tell what's going on with it in the gravel. Post another shot on the pavement if you can.I dunno...Shorter bars, maybe a 21" front wheel? Shorter forks might cause ground clearance issues with this one??? Having said that, if the forks will go right through the upper triple clamp, you could even consider clip-ons...kinda hard to tell with it sitting on the rough ground. Just food for thought.
