    Nice bike! How do you like the Talas on the Spot?

    I like adjustable or ECC forks on the Spot. It really helps put one in a better position for long climbs. Great bike.

    Great bike.

    Don't bother switching from the Thompson post to Easton Carbon, I had a new carbon post and am just about to get a new Thompson to replace my crappy carbon post..

    Nice bike! I was tempted to get a Yeti ARC Carbon post (( http://www.yeticycles.com/2_components/components.html ) but I think I will keep the Thomson, it is "heavy" (230 grams) but feels rock-solid.
