    [Pic Request]Carver O'Beast with oversized (44 & 49mm) headtubes?

    I'm going to build up a Fatback. Placing my order today and need to decide on a fork.

    Fatback Carbon tapered (850 grams)
    Fatback Aluminum tapered (weight ?)
    Carver straight carbon (550 grams)

    I don't want the 49mm headset bottom to look ridiculous. A silly worry I know. I'm leaning towards the aluminum version as it has bottle mounts, is relatively cheap/light and looks boss on my friends Fatback.

    Please post pics of your oversized headtube fork setup and chime in on which fork you think I should get.

    Thanks in advance.
