I agree. Fantastic setup for the picture as well.

I just finished this last night, still needs fine tuning but I just had to ride it. I picked up the frame over a year ago and finally felt up to the task. It is a custom Mikkelsen (not built for me) hardtail. Mid 90's? Reynolds? pretty light frame. A donor bike provided the SRAM X-7 derailleurs, Firex crankset, BB7 front disc and front wheel. I added a Single Digit 7 v-brake for the rear. I wanted a light, rigid fork and thought I would try one of these (subtle they are not.) I took it for a quick spin around the block and liked the ride. I still have a suspension fork if I decide to go that way, but I wanted a quick, light trail bike.

Have you had a chance to ride it yet? How does the fork feel?

Zephyr11 01-13-11 07:39 PM

I'm living in the northeast now, so we got hammered with snow and the trails are covered. I've only had a chance to ride it on the road...couple stairs, some small-ish urban ledges, etc. Super plush compared to the stock fork that came with the bike (RST Launch). It raised the front end of the bike a little, though it feels like less than I expected, since I had practically no sag with the old fork (Launch wasn't set correctly, and I wasn't about to waste money on a new coil for that fork). Looking forward to getting some trail time.

never 01-13-11 08:08 PM

Well it sounds pretty promising for the little amount you spent on it!

merkj 01-16-11 12:53 AM

I just started a few months ago so my ride is entry level. No upgrades, but it gets the job done. I am not ready to start spending thousands of dollars on a bike.

MMMm. New Elixir-R brakes and some SRAM 10 speed goodies. No trail time yet though. 29#6oz.

http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f1...IMG_0022-1.jpg
New Transition chainguide - simple, cheap, and loads lighter than the Truvativ Boxguide it replaced. 35#3oz.

Neither is getting any lighter without compromises I either am not willing to make in the parts spec, or in dollars spent.

Five. Hardtail, squishy trail bike, DH bike, commuter/grocery getter/crap weather around town bike, and road bike. My wife's bike is also kicking around, as well as a cheapy drop tube beach cruiser.
