    some pics of Mav fork/frame contact

    Ok, some people have expressed concern about a DC fork hitting the frame, here are some pics of the bumpers in action. They hit at what can only be a thicker part of the downtube, right at the gusset. I still can't see anything catastrophic happening in a crash, but this is now the only frame and fork I have so it better hold up. After Tscheezy's stories of his attempts to dent his frame, I am very conrfident that it will be fine. If you're not, don't buy the Mav, ride the hell out of yours and be happy.

    p.s. Pete, better focus now?

    In the second picture, is that a reflection or a dent?

    Just kidding! Put that rock down!

    I'm much more interested in your thoughts on the damping. Any more input?
    Faster is better, even when it's not.
