the Reactor is a bad-ass looking piece, but I have trouble putting my shoulder and my vote behind something that I'm convinced would need to be carried off the trail in a sling if it was actually used.


I had the same thought before I got this. I was very surprised by the fork rigidity and the stability in the bumps. I'm not doing any drop-offs on this, although I'm a wimp when it comes to leaving the ground on any bike.

Thanks to everyone on the kind words for the NP Reactor. :D

It's been a great month......I always have a soft spot for the Fat Chance's and Klein's but for this month the 89 Yeti Fro has my vote.

Two of the Kleins in one of my favourite Klein colour schemes ... makes it a difficult choice.
