The SID works really well and looks good but I would be tempted by an Obsys :)

superb 8) 8) 8)
love the white SID

about the obsys - frankly I generally say that it is a fork that decreases the discomfort of a rigid fork :lol:
but saying it is comfortable maybe a bit farfetched. :wink:
maybe the advantage being the Obsys being rather rigid possibly compared to the SID :?:

the only thing I don't fancy here is the saddle- don't finf it elegant :?

Thank you Bruno, I'm glad you approve of what I've done with it :D
I'd agree with all you say about the obsys in my limited experience so far. I have noticed with this SID that I have to give the brake pads a lot of clearance from the rim to make sure they dont rub when I put some weight on the bike or steer - and I didn't think I was that hefty...
What saddle is that on the bike in your picture?

Lots of colour going on above!
Was thinking of this but thought it might be too much white and it has more wear than the rest of the bike. Plus I do like Gobis for riding.
