I damaged the rd racing some blimp on a carbon
and rip the hanger
I managed to find one in the same color, and will repair the old with silver and sell

Very very nice & a fantastic colour
, I have a master with flash carbon forks
But think it would look great with the straight steel forks
Have you ridden with the flash fork ?
I'd there much difference ....
Now to try & find some !
Cheers mark

there is a difference in the forks imho, although that may say more about my riding than the bike
the old style felt lighter steering, was great to ride no hands on,with prescisa you have more weight over the front, feels different ,like it's not playing around any more, seems more responsive steering wise, like you have to be on point with it to ride no hands,I think I prefer it though, the '96 fuc#in' flew with the ultegra, whupped some melt on a crabon, and he only got in font ços he jumped a zebra crossing with old people on it, the filthy cur couldn't look me in the face when i caught him at the lights, so I'm looking forward to putting the chorus 10 gruppo on it a go out whupping more melts

I have the flash forks on my Lux Dream

which is another great ride, I can't comment on carbon forks on a Master I'm afraid as I have no experience
