casting Mg lowers = $20
machining lowers = 25
seamless Al stanchions = 15
forged Al crown = 18
butted Al steerer = 12
assortment of internals = 24
anodizing = 11
powder coating = 9


these specs are for approx. a 300 dollar range fork

i see you assumed CT meant Connecticut, when in fact it is short for "center" as in "center of the earth"... where only my unobtainium fork remains a solid metal.

You know, there's a difference between actually riding a bike and just watching real men ride by while you run around the woods in elf ears.

A gold-colored, battery-operated device that one rides, does not in fact make said item a "bike" or a "ROBOT". It does, however, make you a lecher.
