Those Z2 Bams are ace forks, the same as I have on the Lloyd. Ignore anyone who says they look too bulky for a skinny steel frame - to me they show that the rider/builder knows what works and not what ticks the right period box (no offence meant :twisted: ).

I had to fit firm springs to my Z2's but once I did they feel almost as good as modern forks... so much better than rubber bumper or balloon technology :lol:

Dekerfs are lovely, get it ridden.

These are by far and away the best steel frames ever built, fantastic geometry and feel in the ride, nothing can compare with these ,nothing at all, will look just as ace as the ride feels great.
