time to reporting a small change :D
The chills pills look much better on grello :wink:

Image

Image

Image


and have been tested recently at the first snow in hamburg

Image

Image

Image


I am going something else with the pink Mac, so the grellow needs necessarily a Yo eddy fork! :roll:
..and with a yo fork I would like to use these beautiful wheels.

Image

Image


So ask for help, who has a Yo Eddy fork for me?


greeting

although it is so beautiful

Image

..but it will soon get a new face. 8)

My new fork will be in two weeks finished! I've decided to let it rebuild from George http://www.gebla.de/indexE.html (as a replica of course :wink:) and it's 100% identical to the original yo fork.

Image


In addition, I've finally got my true temper :D I've been waiting a long time for this bar.


Image

Image

and looks much better

:shock:

gorgeous..!

think the XTR hubs will look better.. the front green hub seems a bit out of place with the pink forks.. (though we havent seen the xtr hub in the pink fork yet :wink: )

will the new forks be grello seeing as though youve taken the pink grips off?

My fork is almost ready, here are some pictures of making of :wink:

many thanks to Georg (http://www.gebla.de) for the pictures :D

here you can see, in the middle, a way to facilitate the work: the finished dropouts in variant precision castings.
Not quite so elegant, not quite as light (don't worry, George takes his own dropout :wink:)

Image

The bottom of the steerer will be still completed.
