Bum, I would have had that.. There is one on Zuke though with a white Specialized topcap, reckon I'll get that one..

Thanks for the advice. Saw a mongo 3 in the flesh today, very big cups. Would look a bit silly I reckon.

Aye theyre huge....bit like a pig.... the race overhung on my marzocchi forks a fair bit...on triples it would look sweet though ....also on my road rigids, it fits flush..

(but only because the forks are aero style and the alloy crown flares over a steel steerer)
