I got my IRC Metros today. I ordered them monday morning and they arrived @ 2pm today on 2 day shipping. Not a bad deal for 24 dollars total.

Nice fork! What is it, that looks like a good lot of travel...I fall in love with forks very easily

mostly commuting a bit of curb hopping. I have installed the extra stiff springs...being a big guy it helps prevent bob while pedalling. I dont' do much trail oriented riding...greenways are about as trailish as I get

Adjust the preload all the way to the top to prevent bob. Or upgrade to a fork with a lockout.
