I found my old Street Triple on Craigslist a year ago, emailed the guy to buy it back but he had sold it already. :cry I recognized it immediately by a sticker I had put on the left fork.

I tried grip puppies before the tennis racket tape and didn't like the size and feel of them. The grip tape isn't as big and isn't as squishy as the grip puppies.

The XC has a longer chain as well which accounts for some of the extra wheelbase. Same swingarm, the XC's axle just sits farther back in the adjustment range.
