Don't tell me modern road bikes have tapered steerer forks too!!! Why? Won't that just make them heavier? :?

Stronger and lighter so they say.

I like it. :D
The xizang that is. Not so hot on the road bike.

Quite possibly the first GT that I have both liked and thought of owning. :shock:

Never has a triple triangle looked so good.
