    New fork fitted: Black Beauty just got more beautiful and serious
    So far the new 34 terra fork is a 10/10, stiffer, plush and I use the travel adjust alot, 110 for climbing and tight tecky stuff, open it up for the rest. I'm afraid the old Reba 120mm was pants in comparison. The Yelli has really ramped up, personnally I can't see why anyone would want a 100mm fs
    The only negative about the fork I would say is the price, I got mine from the US £580, if I had got one in the UK £980 Is any fork worth it that much?
    This is going to the Alps with me next year

    As eurospek replied, I built it myself. That bike has been a ton of fun to ride. However, since we now have newborn twins in the house, I don't get to ride as often, and it's a little tough pulling the hills.

    So...I'm just now finishing up a geared bike with similar geometry. I have a few details to finish, and hopefully I'll have it to the powdercoater this week. I'll post pics when it's done!
    May the air be filled with tires!

    Not custom, but I wouldn't change a thing.

    ^ Hottest Honzo around. BTW, that shop you recommended for the black Floats still hasn't replied to an email lol, guess they don't need the business. Picked up a Rockshox Revelation RLT 140 anyway and couldn't be happier.

    ATM, I'm just stock piling parts for a HT 29er build for next season. Had a Canfield Yelli Screamy frame, but turns out with the 20" ST, I would be sitting lower than on my current 19.5" Transition TransAM 26er. Sold it this week. Bigger diameter Thomson posts have less useable length it turns out. Was planning on a Transition TransAM 29er afterwards but it turns out you can only use 2.4 Ardents (or similar volume tires) with a 1x9 drivetrain. I need my granny gear lol. Been talking with Chromag about the Surface 29er, and it fits the bill quite nice, excellent geometry, 21" ST, and massive chainstay clearance with a 2.4 Ardent and 2x10 or even 3x10 cranks. Maybe Santa will be good this year for me?

    Your website looks otherwise nice but some of the texts are not readable on a small screen or in a window that does not cover the whole screen. There might be a line break missing somewhere there too.

    I would like to add my bike to this thread. I believe it falls into this category, it is more mountain than less mountain. Steel with a 120mm fork and a pretty slack head angle. You can really roll back off the saddle and cut loose on the descents. Stan's Flows and Kenda Karma 2.2s (my favorites, I think you can really push these suckers when they are tubeless) on the way as an early Christmas present to myself. The parts configuration is not really all that aggressive with retention systems and stuff because it does pull double duty as a commuter with my modified road wheelset on it.

    Post stealth mission.

    I'm putting together an update for the site after the holidays. I'll address these issues which have popped up over the past year as individuals have given me great feedback. (Thanks for your thoughts.) Along with brewing the coffee and sweeping the floors, I also build the website which has a bit of a learning curve so my apologies if things don't jive on every screen and operating system. It's best viewed in Safari, Firefox and Chrome. Concentrating on finishing tooling, installing lighting in the shop and building out the rest of the shop space before the snow arrives. PM sent regarding your other questions. I update my flickr site weekly with progress.

    On another note: Everyone's builds are very inspiring. Makes me want to go out and ride!

    Made me think of Bill, a relative and old Maine farmer. One summer day he was all smiles, and his wife let on that the local landscapers were giving him weekly checks to come pull the big rocks from his hay fields.

    Can't wait to get mine up here... but it's still just parts.

    /edit: Can someone point me to a thread that describes the difference between AM and XC, etc? I am seriously missing something on these posts that are getting called out.
