Headset was the only one I had in that would fit - which probably tells me something!!

Nothing brutal there mate - just good informed comment!

I love the forks... but what should I be putting them on...

:?

You have built some really nice bikes rich, but this ain't one of them. When I look at it all I see is the fork. It really needs to go buddy. I can't imagine it being pleasant to ride either.

Sorry.

Definitely one of the chunky downtubed Oranges could really work :)

I quit like the bike as it is. The forks arn't that offensive, but must agree the headset is mank.
