That's a cool lookin fork! Are those parts of grips on the upper stanchions?
11-17-09, 08:36 PM
They're there so the stanchions don't mess up the frame.
:lol:...I remember that fork.:thumb: Can't wait to see the big picture.

It's going to be a really slow build though I have 90% of the parts for it.
Ah, the X-Vert R . . . very first fork of my dual-crown dreams. I ended up with a Judy XLC; which turned out to be a decent fork. It will be part of my ski-bike.
A 4" DC is a nice start to any project :thumb:.

I somehow have in my possession a A 2002 Giant Warp DS1 frame that I used to use for when my main bike was down or as a pit bike. For some reason I never got rid of the frame. My goal is to have a bike crappier that Ed's Crapper.
Well now it's on!
(...looks around for mallet...beats crap out of crapper...)

After you blow that fork up (1st ride), let me know. I have a bunch of spare elastomers and bushings lying around somewhere.
I guess if the object is to out-crappify the crapper...he should replace the elastomers with steel stock...thus having a dual crown rigid fork that once was less than awesome.
that fork is terribly awful...........well played

It continues to get worse. :D
Fitted it with the wheels from the dmr to check the geometry.
So...what'chya gonna do with that there thingy?

It will be ridden. How much until it fails in a glorious flaming death? Who knows.
