    Very nice, I love the Paul brakes and levers.

    On question, why not an IF fork? The Blacksheep is nice....

    Does IF make a Ti fork? I couldn't find it on their website. I have an IF steel cyclocross fork on my cyclocross rig and it rides great, but it weighs a bunch (~1200 grams). The exact same axle to crown and offset on my BS 29er fork weighs about half as much (~600 grams).

    Why not IF?

    Thanks.

    I'm planning a custom ti fixed gear for PBP next year and James is on my short list of potential builders. He has a good reputation on this board but I wanted to sample his work before taking the big plunge on a frame. I also wanted to spec the length, offset and brake mounts. His craftsmanship and customer service are first-rate.

    Unfortunately, my work schedule and the weather have kept me from the really long ride I've wanted to put this fork to the test. Last time out I found my favorite trail snowbound up high and wet lower down, so I couldn't really get a baseline feel for it's performance. Hopefully tomorrow the sun will shine...

    Cool, that makes sense. And if you got the height, offset and trail correct then that is what matters most.. Heres to hoping for sunny trails



    PeT, no IF only makes steel forks. But they are nice....

    Left (mine) and right IF, center is Vanilla




    My SS has a Vicious

    Gorgeous paint.

    The purple fork on the first one is awesome.

    Mr. Mojo, that's Sienna/Purple Harlequin aka 'flip flop' paint and Andy's right it is 'a tad Spendy'!!!! LOL

    The first one is Lavender, used to be a stock IF colour.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    Here's another, and in fact the inspiration for my TI, it's Red/Blue Harlequin paint on a steel frame...... this one used to belong to Matt Bracken(VP of IF). Pic doesn't really show it too well.

    Very nice...

    I'm still a big fan of Vs as they allow for a stronger, lighter wheel build. Especially with the wide Paul's rear hub. Nice build. I've been thinking about trying the Pauls levers for some time now. They worth the price over Avid Single digits? (As a side note, I've been using a few sets of Pauls hubs and have had to deal with Paul directly and they have been great to deal with.)

    I haven't registered this one yet. Thanks for reminding me! Here's my other IF SS registered on the site.

    I really like the Paragon dropouts. They are easy to setup, easy for tire changes, and haven't slipped once. Bonus points for being lighter and less maintenance than an eccentric BB.

    Hey Upchuck,

    glad to hear like the sliders, that is what I am using for my Ti project.
    All my other SS's use the ole' track dropout so this will be a nice change.
    What is thy bidding, my master.
