Looks great!

I don't suppose you have any spare tyres like that lying around do you? :D


I have some NOS Continentals exactly ones like that....... whats the width of them pumped up? I'd like to know as they may not fit my new "secret project" bike so would be spare if they didn't...

I have had a couple of rides with these forks and they are so positive on the trail there's no flex at all, the only thing I would change is the stem, its heavy

cheers for the comments chaps :)

Hi Mikee
its a new elastomer thats all but needs the plastic spacer in between the elastomers as the old on had split, its very plush as its also got new bushings
and feels like its more than 2" travel.
as much as I liked the pace on her I prefer the ride quality with the girvin's, but if these end up on something else I might get the conversion for a fox aircan?
