well that was sort of the point for me, i rode a cromega a while ago when i was still in the trade, it was all working perfectly but it just felt wrong and i was really surprised about that as it was all original, having said that it was the larger size than this one.
the reason i bought this one was because i wanted to scratch the e-stay itch and this as you guys know came up pretty cheap.
i expected this to feel a bit poo purely because of the longer than normal fork so when i took it for a quick spin i was pleasantly surprised, no weird steering and that was the main thing i was concerned about, the shorter than normal stem and riser bar probably made up for the extra length in the fork giving a more normal modern feel to the front end.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
