just a question..the forks have the legs a different colour..was this the norm?

If so balance wise wouldn't you have done the same on the rear stays?




It came with these Bontrager forks but in black all over.

Sometimes though a DB would be specced with the Roberts Fork Play forks using Reynolds tubing and they were be black and white and so had an idea just to alternate the legs.

So far i havent had any backlash............yet :lol:

Heres one.
