    Post pictures of your titanium frames with rigid forks!

    Have a Selma on the way from Hammerheadbikes.com - Your 29er Source and am thinking of going with a Niner RDO 15mm rigid fork or a Whiskey Parts Co monocoque fork in matte paint.

    I'm trying to get an idea of which way to go, nude Niner, moondust Niner, throw down for a Black Sheep fancy smancy multi-tubed rigid fork, etc. etc.

    So, please post pictures of your titanium 29ers with rigid forks! This should be the sexiest post on MTBR.

    Nice! Did the Niner fork come without decals or did you 'de-cal' them yourself (if so how did you do it)? Thanks...

    Somewhat old school and set up for winter asphalt trails. I prefer the smooth lines of this type of fork over the crowns of the carbon forks.

    I did it myself, just rubbed back with increasingly fine wet and dry sandpaper (wet sanded the whole way). IIRC started with 400, 800, 1200, then finished with 2000. The clearcoat is quite thick, did the decal areas only. Just need to make sure you don't go right through the clearcoat and on to bare carbon. Then did a final polish with some T-Cut and by that point they were looking pretty good. However I put a couple of coats of clear over the top just to get them looking even. Ultimately I then masked and painted them in another colour so that they now look like this:

    Love those Pegasus. I was working on putting in an order last time, however they fell just outside my budget.

    Here's my 2011 Lynskey Pro29er SL (XL). Love the way it rides, no regrets.

    IS that the new one Jon? Looks nice! Surprised the brake mount is not on the chainstay with the seatstays curved like that. Is Sean preparing to drill some holes in it to save a bit more weight? ;-)

    sam: brake mount on the slider....the curves are aesthetic in this instance :-)~

    fork is a niner with tapered steerer, painted by the folks at Coat.

    I really like the 2 Potts' designed around non suspension corrected forks, it looks right and has to be better.

    OK Mr. Parson, only for you. Sorry but the Ti fork fell off in a moment of weakness for extra cash. Replaced with another fork I had in the pile at the time of these pix. But you may notice the upgrade to a real stem, which is Ti.

    How is this set up in the trails? I'm thinking of changing things a bit. My bike Moto Fly Team Ti 29er with REBA RL 100mm. XC rider.

    Would it make a big difference if I swap the Nobby Nics for the slightly wider Hans Dampf? (2.35vs2.4)
