No its not the photography...
Hey it each to their own, but every time I have seen those forks (usually on the front of a GT STS), they look horrible. Some people like the look of them, me I don't think they look good on any bike ever... but thats just me... the rest of the bike is fine, actually looked much much better with the Fox, but yeah if they are too long, then there is no point keeping them.
haha yeah they are pretty funky looking. I mostly like their handling (no flex) + I'm a cnc/carbon fiber dork since I operate a giant CNC machine and work with carbon fiber all day. I really did like the Fox forks, and I may go back at some point (sold this pair with my litespeed obed) but the fournales are rarer too. I was pretty tempted to keep the Fox and have the travel reduced but having 2 forks for one bike is impractical. Also tempted to go lefty but that's probably a pipe dream.
Do you think I should go back to the carbon fiber stem/bars and keep the post or swap the post for Moots and go all out?
& @Kaiser, thank you very much
I'm good at finding that needle in the haystack.... even though sometimes it's just because I stepped on it and it jammed into my foot. Boulder Intrepid TI Peacock Fade
Moots YBB about to be for sale.... along with two sets of Fournales (one Medium one Large both bearing version.... not the bushing versions.) :'( Life happens.... harder to some than others.
