after my fork purchase, for a merlin. the next bike along really thinking about a new IF steel deluxe, with custom paint option, and really tempted to go for grello frame & fork with canti studs. i'm really after a Yo-Ed, how else can i get one. Q. would this wrong? thoughts.
If I decided for an IF I would try to give it its own identity and not creating sort of a wannabe FAT. Honestly I think IF itself already adopted quite a lot of the funny style FAT was known for - you can see this by comparing various brochures for example.
- allows more travel (if you like)
- more freedom in suspension choice, as 1-1/8 (if you need)
- allows discs more easily (if you want)
- it is the icon
I do not have the problem of bar hitting toptube. A lot has to do with what bar, what stem, how many spacers etc.
