The continuation of the evolution of this bike.. :mrgreen:

The nice existing black forks is suspension corrected and did not fit to the geometry of this frame
so I had to find a new solution and after a very long search I found it ...1 inch P2 :wink:

The combination really convinced me.

now I wonder if I should powdercoat the P2 in black?

I'm going to do the same thing on mine : swaping the original Ritchey, a bit too low (385mm) for a higher Project2 (395mm). I tried other forks, and it appears that 395 is the good length for my XS sized Merlin frame
