I just swapped out those forks for a pair of Fit Shivs. The pedals are alright, so far. If I had to buy a pair of pedals, I'd probably get the metal version, though.

Looks great. Why did you choose that frame? Not very familiar with the brand.

I chose it because (A) Solid builds their frames in Sacramento, and (B) they hooked it up.

Dans has plenty of variety? What exactly were you referring to by variety?
