    In the interest of pulling this thread completely off-topic, I was browsing around their site. Has ANYONE (I'm sure theres a few Euros) used the FRM fork and can they attest/compare the performance and stiffness of the fork?

    They're certainly light!!

    No lighter than a stock 98 SID.

    perhaps, but my question was if they worked well and were stiff, and certainly are more available than 98 SIDs

    I don't know about the fork, looks a bit spindly for me, but I can vouch for the 347g Olympic rims. I have a ZTR355 in front for almost a year, and an Olympic rim in the back for about 5 months. I am using the front with a Stan's rimstrip (no problems) and the back just with 12mm nylon tape I got at the hardware store and the included valve stem. I wrapped the tape around twice and have not had a problem yet. Holds air just as good as the rimstrip front. And you can definitely notice the weight when climbing. Saving over 1/4 pound per wheel helps!

    That fork comes with no V brake bosses and it is also elastomer sprung. Never used it but others here have (Nino etc.) and will tell you the same thing. Thumbs down.
    If in doubt - pedal harder!!!
