That's pretty cool. Might solve some of the difficulty of truing low spoke count wheels.

Tire clearance is for wimps.



Now nobody can tell me a dj1 cannot fit a 3.00, there is aboot 1mm of clearance on each side. This is just because I was bored and currently don't have a mtb. But I should have a Cove Stiffee by the end of the week and a bigger fork by the end of next week.

Also, all Pinarello's are sexy.

That fork is one of the most love/hate things I've ever come across. There are no lukewarm feelings about Pinarello's forks.

It never ceases to amaze me how effective guard cats are at keeping other cats from stealing our bikes.

Notice that in most photos with a cat, the bike is missing parts? They are either running a huge feline bike parts fencing scam or they suck as bad at bike guarding as they do at everything else!
