    Finally got around to putting the rigid fork on my ECU. The fork is an enve, with the offset in the 51mm position. My ECU is semicustom geometry, very similar to a Santa Cruz highball. Former fork was a fox 32 100mm. At the same time, I built new wheels with derby 29mm internal rims, moving up from 2010 era 19mm internal Arch's. 1 ride in so far, and I found climbing to be much better, as expected. The ride wasn't nearly as harsh as I thought the ECU might be with a rigid fork. How much of that as the enve fork vs. the additional volume of the Derby rims, I don't know. I fully expect that I'll need to dial in the perfect tire pressure with this combination.

    As far as how it handles... I don't know, compared to what?
