dunno if I got that all straight here, but a pal of mine here is riding these forks for about four months now. They are XACD made and 1" steerer, too. Looking exactly the same. Advantage was the custom height and steerer length. Paid about 200 â‚¬, weighs like 650grams. Any parameter is individually definable.
He says the bosses are too weak and should be used with a brake booster. Apart from that the performance is perfect. And as far as I'm concerned he's not going easy on it at all...
He should be around here as well. [Elmar, hope I got that all right..
We heard about the mtbr-thread and the broken forks. But it's said they've considered the production process and sorta 'mended' the weak points.
So if these are of the right karma for your FAT, only you can decide.
I think optically this is perfect. Technically Ti-forks have always been a strict no-no, no matter what anybody ever says. Would be great if that's changed.
Hope this helps, David
