(My tale of "woe" started in an older thread. Maybe this isn't the best forum to continue in, but I'm new here. )
Phase I of the conversion of my GT MTB to a more road-worthy fitness bike is complete.
Okay, I guess "Phase I" is kind of monumental-sounding for a simple fork swap. But I did get a new cable housing for the rear derailleur, if that makes it any more monmuental.
At any rate, I went for a short ride after picking it up from the LBS tonight, and the new fork is noticably lighter (in my head, anyway). More importantly, I feel like I'm getting more power down when cranking up hills, and putting less power into bouncing up and down on a front suspension. In all, I'm happy with the new fork.
Oh, and now I can fit a fender if I (heaven forbid) decide to try commuting.
Phase II is a set of city tires (semi-slick with some puncture resistance), and Phase III is a new stem for a slightly more upright riding position.
Anyway, I wanted to check back in, since pictures were requested.
