    Nice!

    Have run (and recommended on this forum) that exact combo for a couple of years. You are right, that big tire makes everything in front of you look small, doesn't it!

    Did the big fork negatively change your bikes handling? I/We have found that it mellows out a sharp head angle just enough to make it even better.

    No not really. It's suprising just how much difference a little more tire makes.

    BTW, I was curious if the new fork was absolutely necessary to fit the Gazzaloddi 3.0. As it turns out the existing fork height wise was just fine, but width wise the tread nubs (not the sides of the tire) just slightly would have slightly rubbed. I have heard of some people trimming the nubs slightly to fit a big tire but do not know how that would have worked. (It is not a cheap tire so I would have changed the fork anyway.)
