    Oh no! A reverse Girvin!

    Looks very cool actually, not sure I'd buy one but very cool all the same.

    I always kinda liked my Girvin. I think it could have been an awesome and lightweight fork if you took out the under-damped 90's shock and put in something like an RP23. One of these days...

    I'm surprised there wasn't more discussion on this new fork concept.

    I'd love to try it out. I'm skeptical about the lateral stiffness with this design. That and rebound control....oh, and it's god aweful ugly!!!

    I don't see any damping of any sort, rebound or compression. I'd love to see what happens when you hammer the brakes.

    The lateral stiffness is surprisingly good. I've been riding/racing one for the past few months and I'm in love with it.
