That fork looks rather long, but I have to say I really like the camo! (don't paint, don't paint!)

Sensorily that 10mm may just disappear while riding.....certainly is an awesome fork.

Changed wheels again...BB arrived this morning so I will have the drive all sorted by tonight.
Brakes need tidying and fettling...another couple of days and it will be ready.
Have not painted forks yet, I will ride it first

:lol: Rear wheel issues. Rebuilt the hub with correct size axle and spacer but the dish is way out....about 4.5mm off centre. Waiting for LBS to re-dish.

Then I need to bleed the brakes and set them up...nearly there
