    Hey xJAHx,
    Here is a old pic of your new bike.


    I've posted my new one before but here is another one.

    I really like the lines on your new ride, Pat.

    I have had your old bike on the trails twice now, and it is exactly what I wanted compared to my old Jones in regard to increased front end compliance and overall feel.

    I love the gusset that James added!

    there are times I do miss the comfort of unicrown fork esp. on the rough down hills however the faith gives me a bit more control.
    Nat,
    Give the handle bars a few rides. I was ready to get rid of mine after the first few rides and went so far as to buy a new set and ride them for about a week before I had to give MM bars another shot. Now I would not ride anything else In fact I'm waiting for James to finish my new bar stem combo. If nothing else call James I'll bet he would work something out with you.

    Thanks, but I'm long past the bars. I gave them enough time to know they aren't for me. The hand/brake positions did not suit me, that's all. Rather than have James re-bend them I'd just as soon get them into the hands of someone who wants them as-is.

    1st ride tonight....I don't know about the unicrown, but I was missing the Reba on my Eriksen. I'm hoping the learning curve is gentle

    Ha, Squeaky. You will get used to the truss fork and riding rigid in general. For our ever rocky east coast trails, the truss was bone jarring and reminded me of my first MTB with an alloy fork.

    I hope you're right.
    The Rocky Mtns aren't exactly smooth though.....

    I have a much better appreciation now for why Volkstech shakes out his hands at the end of one of our long descents.

    Pretty bike. I hope it is vertically compliant and laterally stiff.

    I really like the lines of the frame itself.

    Hey now, that was uncalled for.
