    Are talking road bike, mountain bike, or what? An idea of riding style and conditions would help too. And how wide is wide?

    Are those thermoses mounted behind the forks?

    yep, those are thermos behind the fork.

    I'd stick those to the leading rather than the trailing edge of the fork since snow and slush builds up on the rear of the crown...

    Nice, but just curious. Why would someone use a suspension seat post with a full suspension setup?
