    It's definitely a cute little thing. What size frame? (and what's with this neg rise crap )

    I must say I've always been an oogler of Salsa.

    Nice job.

    Positive rise is a big no no in the road bike forum, not here? J/K.

    Small 16.5 I think but still has a 23" top tube.
    thanks for the compliment

    Don't like them. I like the 20mm TA a lot but the valving blows. The absolute adjustment is six clicks and three are lockout. There is no bottoming dampeners and the stroke has no progressiveness. So basically you can bottom the fork pretty easily and it dives. I have a Fox Talas on the other bike and it is hands down a better fork. The Manitou is very stiff and light though. 3.8pounds with the TA. I only paid $250 for it so I shouldn't complain too much.

    The bike is optimized for a 80mm fork but I got a deal on a 100mm fork. When I was test riding it the front end felt a little high so I flipped the stem. The seat is about 5mm lower now too, so the geometry is slightly less wild looking.
    Next time I will take the pictures with it normal and flip it afterward for my my comfort, to not offend.

    At least no one is bringing up the chain not being in the big ring, the valve stems not opposing, the tire lettering, etc.

    Your daring upside stem inspired me.

    If I run Navegals(850+grams without tubes) it teeters over the 24lbs mark but with Nano Raptors(600 and something with tube) it is a low 23. Cranks and wheels aren't the lightest either.

    Ya, it's one of them new composite jobs. Gotta be careful with them - - one scratch and the things are liable to explode with you in it.
