Just completed a Kish titanium build. This is my first Kish and I am extremely happy with the finish, geometry and weld quality.....in my opinion quality is inline with Moots. Weight on this is around 20lb with the big no name slicks, with Schwalbe's this should be down to 19lb. The ride is very smooth without being flexy in the BB and the fork dampens out much of the vibration.

That fork don't match with the frame in my opinion
Titanium frame with a carbon fork is not done
Get a titanium fork for it and it will look better and ride even more better with damping the vibration

Not sure if I agree with the dampening comment as the fork does a great job at that but a titanium fork would look much better. I'm searching for a suspension corrected rigid ti fork.
