    CF fork on Rig?

    Anybody running a CF fork on a Rig? Mostly curious about a Niner CF fork. I am never content to leave something alone and have to be tinkering with it all the time. Currently running a 2008 Rig with a non G2 Reba.

    I hear a lot of people bustin' on the Genesois geometry but I must say I feel really at home on this bike.

    Looks good with all the silver... hope it handles as good as it looks.

    P.S. I have an On-One CF fork, too. On my On-One... but that's not a G2 frame.

    Actually, it handles very well!

    The pic doesn't do it justice.... The hoops are actually white Flows.....

    I decided on the On-One due to the fact there is no rider weight limit or brake size limit...

    Also, the geometry is pretty damned close to the Fox G2....

    People at my local trail look at me like I'm nuts (most of them have 4-6" suspended 26ers), but the bike rides very well with the big air up front (Weirwolf 2.55) and the Race Face carbon bars....

    The weight reduction (esp in the front) make the ride more responsive... Sure, I can't bomb the down-hill sections now, but I can make up a lot in the single-track areas.........

    I have a G2 Fox in my On One.
    Works fine, feels no different than the On One CF I used before.
    Maybe G2 and On One geometry aren't that much different.

    I guess so
    The part numbers for the three lengths used to be displayed on that page, the dealer was able to order one using that part number.

    I was told around Christmas when I asked last fall, then spring, and now I've heard it's been postponed even further down the road.

    How long ago did you order it?

    I'd be interested to see if your dealer has a date now or not.

    Just ordered a white brothers 26" 445mm. Should end up feeling the same as the current Psylo but considerably lighter. Can't wait.
