Sorry Jez,

I must be the only dissenter, but I just can't swallow seeing those mass produced Chinese forks mated to the soul of a Fat.

Bad Kharma IMO.

Take it with a grain of salt though, this coming from a guy that stays away from the big S when I can too.

They look a lot like a set of on-one Ti forks, although those never came with V/canti mounts.

Yeah good feedback...

Mmm I think they look ok but I do agree with Rody hence the reason why I posted....

These are SIBEX forks - so I assume they are mass manufactured variants of the Spicer fork..

Dunno what to do now...
