It really does suit it. I gotta get it apart and see what it looks like inside. It’s functioning but has that manitou slouch to it.

These forks use no bushings, they work on a tube-into-tube principle! Be careful with the rubber boot, if it gets a hole you have a problem.
I use one of these forks in my IRD FS. The first one was very loose and had lots of play in it. No chance to repair it, I think. It took me three years to find another one, since these became somehow rare.

Loving that, are you going with black components too?

That is just awesome, Jim! Is that a Salsa stem you have found?
