    Sweet rig, how does the fork perform? Travel? Offset, a-to-c?

    Just curious, nice light bike and all, but you ever ride that thing over 3 hours, heck even over 2? Also, what are the trails like you ride? That saddle looks extreemly painful and as a true weight weenie how come you haven't cut the steerer tube donw all the way yet, that's at least another 50-60g maybe even more including spacers?

    Why don't you lighten up and leave the guy's bike alone?!

    Just because he's posted photos does not mean you need to berate him for the choices he's made.

    You may differ in your opinion of these parts but that doesn't mean you should state that opinion in such an inflammatory and aggressive manner. Be a better human being and state your thoughts in a positive way.

    Oh I'm sorry, I missed the memo where it said you can only post sweet, honey and sugar comments towards a post by someone about their bike There was nothing agressive, I stated MY opinion about his saddle - IT LOOKS UNCOMFORTABLE AS FVCK - and I'm allowed my opinion. If he didn't want people to pass comments then he shouldn't have posted it.

    BooHoo, now I"m gona go cry, cause you were mean and hurt my feelings

    When you do go cry, please don't return. Your posts are inane and a worthless attempt to bolster your post count, which is in itself an utterly pathetic cry for attention and recognition.

    This is my second and final reply on this thread; I'll PM you should I feel the need to further explain your internet personality defects. I rather enjoy this thread for its original intent.

    Based on your original comments regarding this bike, I'd wager a guess that you could never ride such a bike for one of several reasons:
    1. too uncomfortable (since you obviously can't handle a hardtail)
    2. too expensive
    3. too light for your weight
    4. not trendy enough
    5. or, finally, would force you to change your cute "RIP9ing it up..." tagline.


    Okay, I'm done. Thanks and enjoy the toilet that internet forums have become as a result of anonymous, faceless bashing of others.

    Oh, and PS - nice use of an expletive! How ingenious it was to use the letter V instead of U!! I wish I had thought of that. Your limited vocabulary, which you exhibit by your use of profanity, has further proven the fact that you are of primary school education. You should have just kept your mouth shut instead of proving this fact by opening it.

    TaTa!

    This fork is Wrcompositi fork, is build in Wr, 100% italian manufacture, 100% Handbuild in Italy from Wr, Wr is incredible factory (do you know wrm motorcycles? race in supermotard world championship...), they build all in him factory...this fork is the best fork that i test in my life, i had Fox,Reba and Lefty 29er but this is better in all, 1266 gramms complete off all, stiffer, faster, super lockout, simple to adjust, simple to manteince...for me is the best.
    On Wr web site you can find only 26er fork, 29er will be on the web faster.....

    Based on your original comments regarding this bike, I'd wager a guess that you could never ride such a bike for one of several reasons:
    1. too uncomfortable (since you obviously can't handle a hardtail) - Own a and ride a rigid, so no.
    2. too expensive - most likely, the most I'll spend on a bike is about $4,500.
    3. too light for your weight - from the looks of those components, most likely, but if you're trying to imply I'm your typical, fat american slob, then no, not quite, I'm 6'2" 174lbs.
    4. not trendy enough - Trends, bah I ride what I like and I like bikes I can ride hard without worrying about sh1t breaking.
    5. or, finally, would force you to change your cute "RIP9ing it up..." tagline. - yeah you figured it out

    Wow,

    why does it always come to this.

    To the OP...

    Nice light setup! I will covet that fork along with the Carbon Lefty for when my wrists can't take the rigid any longer. Probably won't be long...=(.

    I'm not going to jump on your back like some other guys did, but if a saddle fits your body the right way, you really don't need any padding on it.

    My saddle is the plastic shell of a Bontrager InForm RL I "totalled" in a road crash. I ripped the tattered cover off, buffed the plastic, and now, I have a saddle I ride 15-20hrs+ a week. To many, it looks like it should hurt, but it fits me perfectly, and with a proper set of bibs, there is absolutely no reason for padding on a saddle.

    I wish I could put that kind of time in. But I agree, once you find a saddle that works, well it works.

    What is the italian opinion on the FRM 29er fork, did you manage to test one of those?

    For those of you who don't know how to use google here is the info for the fork:

    http://www.wrcompositi.it/catalogo.php?prodotto=44#

    I had to translate the link with google as I can't get it to go to English, my computer doesn't like the button on their site

    "Two years of research and development, two years of tests in competition and training have led us to define the lightest suspension fork and performance that we could build. Smoothness, structural stiffness (in bending and torsion) and ease of maintenance make it a must. Operation air and oil, pluriregolabile both in extension and compression is achieved with or without locking system."

    OP that bike looks awesome. Not for me personally but I like your weight weenieness, it's coming along great. Lynskey are the goods.

    Awesome I love my forks to be pluriregolabile

    EDIT: That fork is claimed to be 2.686 lbs including the remote. 30mm x 80mm or 100mm. Wow, that's light. I wonder if it's as noodley as a plate-o-pasta?

    On Wr web site you can find only 26er fork, 29er will be on the web faster.....
    Wonder if this company was started by someone who hired all of the former Marzocchi guys that used to build nice forks several years ago. ("Oh no he di'nt!")

    Sorry, couldn't resist the opportunity to take a cheap shot. For the record, I own and use a Marzocchi fork and recommend everyone else do so too.
