    It's 110mm but the axle to crown is 510mm so it's the same as running a reba at 100mm only you get 10mm more travel. It's a very nice fork and that extra 10mm really helps in the rough stuff.

    It's the fluid model. I don't much care for the complicated platform systems. They add weight and increase the chance of failure.

    My Air9

    Wish a full season of dirt, mud and muck from a combination of XC, 24 Hour and 100 mile races I finally had a chance to add a photo or two.

    Thanks, I'm running a White Industries ENO Crank. I'm contemplating swapping the chainring for a Ti Boone but it has been running great so far.

    As for the price...depends on the build I suppose. Mine was $2,000+ but it could be built up cheaper I'm sure.

    Thanks. The bar is a Salsa Pro Moto 11*. I cut the bars down to 620mm or so (stock their 660. The only silver flat bars I could find were cheapie Kalloys or Nitto/Surly Torsion Bar. I ended up using the Pro Motos because they were light and I had them lying around. I sprayed them with Oven Cleaner and then sanded/polished them to the silver finish. They were supposed to be a temporary solution until I got some Titanium Luv Bars but so far I'm really liking them with the Cane Creek Ergo Barends I added later.
