    Girder, not Girvin, Fork

    Maybe all of you already know this guy; maybe not.

    The Full Moto geo looks like that other English "all-terrain" bike (edit: the Cleland! ...finally remembered the name), but I wonder how it does on steeps.

    ....and that fork (scroll to 1/1/2018)

    Your first bike always seems pretty awesome. Looks like he did a fine job and I'm sure it's fun to ride. Having the bars higher and weight over the BB is something everyone already does - so it's revolutionary compared to, say, a mountain bike from 1993.

    Cool. I like the vibe.

    I'd be willing to help make a fully functional example, wherever I might be capable.

    Quite willing.

    EDIT: of the fork specifically
    Disclaimer: I run Regular Cycles (officialy in 2016, functionally in 2020).

    Mr. Davey has very little knowledge if geometry and completely went down the wrong road. We don't need bikes like this.

    Why don't "we" need bikes like this? At least he is thinking about what he wants, and then building something to try out those thoughts.

    A while ago I had a ride on an 80 year old bike belonging to a work colleague. It was a world away from current fashions, but the complete package worked beautifully. I'm borrowing it this winter to figure out why it works, and then trying to condense that into a lighter modern variation as my utility / commuter.

    I saw his reworked Sturmey hub a few years ago and was quite impressed - almost enough to overlook the logo and T-shirts :-)

    'Full moto geo' looks like a design from 10 years ago that doesn't need high rise handlebars. I like high rise handlebars. It's interesting that his previous bike was a Last Fast Forward, a modern design.
