    Nice project though I think adding at least a pound of weight on top the bars would make for some noticeable, likely negative, handling changes.

    You'd think so, but because its mounted that close to the stem its not an issue at all.

    Interesting. The reason I thought that it would is my son and I have almost identical SC Blurs. Mine has a Fox Float though and his a Fox Vanilla. Same travel, just the Vanilla weighs more because it is a coil spring instead of air. His bike is noticeably "front heavy" compared to mine. Harder to lift the front when riding over logs and rocks, etc.
