Yep, got rear Wilbers and front Traxxion Dynamics AK-20 cartridge kit.

The stock suspension on the roadie sucked. Front end bottomed out on crappy roads, rear would never stay planted on washboarded dirt.

Now... well it's a whole new bike :). Love the adjustability. Would absolutely do it all over again. Luckily I live about 35 miles from the USA Wilbers distributor (Beemershop, Scotts Valley CA) so I just had them install everything.
