    Man, that thing is sweet. That Niner fork suits that frame perfectly! Thanks for the pics.

    I have a couple of questions. I've been thinking of doing this too for short track racing. Bike looks awesome, very nice.

    1. The Niner forks are not tapered. How do you adapt the fork to a tapered head tube? What if you wish to switch back and forth with the Reba XX?

    2.ehhh, never mind, I see that there are two different times that these photos were taken. The steerer has been cut.

    The Niner fork is tapered. That is what makes it easy to swap back and forth.

    They aren't Roval wheels that are on the bike in the pictures. They look to be No Tube's Crest rims with American Classic hubs. The weight listed is with the Roval Carbon's and not the wheels pictured.

    you wanna have a look at the last pic and then answer? those are definitely rovals, most likely Alloy EL29 not the Carbon SL29. There is something fishy with the XX brake levers as well, no?

    Ah gotcha yeah they sure must be Roval's. Was just looking at the first pic. Maybe they ran out of red Aerolites or someone detensioned them and installed Revolutions instead. The brakes also have something up as well.

    Wicked looking bike!
    How does it ride with the niner fork? Is it ok when you get on rough/rocky ground? Does it change the geometry/handling? Do you like it enough to keep it on for everyday riding or will you change back to a suspension fork? Did you have any problems getting it fitted?
    Thanks
