    X-Fusion is showing this new proto fork. Looks like it might handle a wide tire.

    HERE IS A FEW BIGGER PHOTOS

    its great concept ,
    i know its DH concept but they could use double crankset with roller to make it more capable
    i always had question in mind - why nobody tried to do it sooner ??
    its not that much of a problem if You have all needed tolls under one roof

    i'm happy to see 20mm axle up front - i think that is best way for any FAT suspension fork !

    in any case if they made a kit for my Nomad I will be all over (the V-10 is just to much bike/travel to be on fat tires)

    I'm guessing the custom rear end by sycip on a stock front assembly. Cool bike.

    Man, they must have had to really pinch their pennies to build this. Looks like it cost some serious coin.

    I dunno, just my two cents...

    If somebody would make a fatty rear triangle, I bet they'd make a killing. I'd buy one in a heartbeat for my Nomad.

    Sycip would make a killing modding frames for fat tires. Imagine bringing your favorite frame in and leaving with room for fat tires

    I think it'll last a lot longer than the air in the tires.

    Neat concept, great execution.

    I hear Santa Cruz has some sort of an Annual Goofy Bike Build...
    One year they did a Chopper out of a DH frame.

    At first I thought nobody appreciated my humor, but I'm realizing that perhaps my reference was too obscure about them using pennies to cap the tubes in the frame.

    Funny stuff aside, I think that's kinda neat, haha. Heads on drive side, tails on the other.

    I'd buy one of these today if they had 'em. Those tires would have to go -- as soon as the Bud and Lou come out. Nobody really mentions it but those BFL's kinda suck.
