    very nice though my one little nit-pick would be it you built it up custom why not a ta fork?

    Mainly due to funds... Found a killer deal on the fork. Also the wheels I had recently built for my Fuel which didn't have a T A fork . Once sram offers the axle adapters I will probably due a Fox 32 or something along that line

    27.15lbs. Can drop a little with a lighter chain. Current one a PC-971. and I am sure I could find a few other spots... But.... being I weigh 220lb I guess this is light enough.

    mine weighs 29.6 as shown in the chumbs vf2 thread with some good parts and some heavy parts (joplin) on it so your 27.1 is pretty impressive.

    Looks good!Once you sell the Trek,I highly suggest going with a TA setup,that will be the icing...

    Funny you just said that...... I lost one today on the drive side in the rear after about 15miles into today's ride. No biggie ... I found it on the trail and put it back in without the nut since that was gone.LOL Good thing I there was a roll of electrical tape with us to wrap the bolt in place. was able to ride the 2 miles back to the car.... Can't fret over the little things-- The bike rode UNBELIEVABLE. Either way I am still stoked about the bike. Oh well off to the hardware store for some locktite and a new nut.

    Lunch..... Was worth the wait....
    Ride was a blast...I am glad I was able to ride back to the car and not have to huff it back.

    Bike fixed... original was a normal nut so I put a Nylock in. With loc-tite of course. Even pulled the other bolt out and did that one. LOL
