    Giving an old look a new try

    So I now have some nice Velocity Blunts paired up with some Nevegal 2.35s on the SnakeDriver and I figured I'd bring an old fork back into the mix and set it up with some front suspension.

    Jury is still out but figured I'd let you guys have a look and get your thoughts.

    She's set up at about 125mm of travel in the photo but could be lowered down to 115mm or raised to 145mm of travel.

    Whattya think?



    Cheers,

    Mark

    Very stylish with the white rims and dark frame looks nice. Alas no hardtails in my future but if you can take the pounding you go boy!

    Yeah, the white rims look great on that bike. Whats the BB height with the fork @ 125?

    I'd say it is about 12.5" - will have to measure to be certain though.

    Looking good. The white gives a nice contrast. I'd go down to 115, but that's a personal preference.

    That's one of the nice aspects of this particular fork! I can go up or down and all sorts of points in between (fingers crossed that the wind down function doesn't crap the bed though).
