    That is nice Rich. Like the colors too. Yellow Rocks! What kind of forks are those? Is that an English brand?

    Those are Noleen a.k.a. Pro-Flex, a.k.a. AMP (I think!). They're a pretty nice fork. The design allows for the wheel path to travel up and BACK! Not up and forward like most telescopic forks.

    Drawbacks were that they developed a lot of play in the multiple pivots, and were expensive because the shock in front is a special design and proprietary! Also the company that made them were financially shaky!

    But they rode nice!

    those noleen forks are not strong at all. They get terrible reviews and few companies use them. I have a buddy who weighs 140 lbs and broke three of that model fork. the bike is really cool though.

    They're the carbon fibre forks, so it doesn't really surprise me that they break easily.

    I wanted to get a set myself ages ago, but never seemed to get around to it!

    It is cool looking though eh!
