So I've mounted the rigid fork and the bike looks pretty stupid. I've got a Marz Z.4 (blue) that I'm tempted to try on the bike. The steer tube was too short for my previous frame, but it might be just perfect for this bike. What do you guys think - stay rigid which is more practical for a work bike build, or go front squish which will probably look better on the bike?

Try one then if your not happy try the other
Get it built and evolve it , that's what cheap builds are about mate

Ok, so its done. Here are some photos from my shakedown ride last weekend. I think it looks kinda goofy with the silver Ritchey riser stem, but I really like the convenience of the removeable faceplate, I don't have any black ones in my parts bin and I'm paranoid about the frame being too small for me so I want the extra rise.

I'm enjoying the ride so far - in addition to the shakedown ride I've been riding it to work while I convert my old Kona Dew hybrid into a flat bar CX inspired commuter.

Funny, I was never a big GT fan BITD, but I'm liking this bike. I just wish i this was a 19 in.
