Nope...just haven't goten off my butt and ordered the necessary parts from Chris King to run my Devolution headset as a normal 1.25" King, So until I do that, I'm using the Beast as built. :D

I also think I'll custom pain the 1.25 stem that originally came on the Cannondale and use that too...

I'd be tempted to get the P2 forks Powder coated to match the frame, that would look really cool.

To be honest I find them a bit skinny compared to the original forks. And in red there not gonna look any fatter I'm afraid.

I agree with you, Herman. The P2s work ok for now, but the Pepperoni waiting in the wings is going to be an improvement. The biggest issue is, and I know its kind of hard to tell because the Beasts have high bottom brackets anyway, but the P2 is suspension adjusted, and the Pepperonis (and Beast frames) are not...so the bottom bracket is WAY off the ground! :shock: :D
