    Good job! Ok pics of the new rockshox totem on my 05 joker

    This fork is awesome. I just went out for my first ride on it today. The fork is really plush and seem to handle it all. You can also see more pics of the joker as it was built up over time on http://www.capescafe.com/daves-mount...kes/index.html

    Your bike looks really good!

    I have to caution you about the long travel fork and the Chris King headset. After switching to a King, I was having trouble keeping the star nut in my forks tight. I then tried a Hope Head Doctor and the bolt sheared off. Simultaneously, others reported having issues with their headsets creaking. I then put it together: my headset was the problem combined with the fork I was running (AM1 at the time).

    Lyrik situation

    Apparently, the compression washer does not hold the head tube tight enough to handle the forces applied by a longer travel fork - I'd say this exists from 150mm and up, though it may go down to 140mm forks, too. Also apparent is that Cane Creek owns the patent on the "fix"; a type of washer that applies pressue inside the top set of bearings that King will not produce or pay into.

    With a fork like the Totem, you may begin to experience this. I run a 66 on my Moment and the headset "ticks". I'll probably have to replace it soon...

    Well I ended up spending alot of money on this bike. The wheel set alone I spent $700 to get those built and that fork I spent $750 and I have been slowly building this bike up. Its nothing like the money I spent on my devinci johnson. You can see pics of that one at http://www.capescafe.com/daves-mount...kes/index.html
