Brakes: Joe's Brakes w/ diacomp MKII levers
Bars: Titec 118

Yes, that fork on this frame just isn't right. The blue chainrings look a bit off as well.

But it's a Fat, so I love it :D
Is it your first? If so, you're going to love it as well.

Thanks for the reply. No this is not my first fat, I also own a 91 Wicked. However, this is my first yo. Yes I am not a fan of the fork as I'm a rigid fan. I just ordered a rigid fork which should be coming my way in about 3 weeks. I agree about the chainrings as I am not a fan of the blue anodized on this bike. I was thinking about sending them off to get anodized black and then I plan to leave the whole chainring, rear cogs etc until they are all ready to be swapped at the same time. The bike rides really dialed in right now so I am going to leave it for now. Anyway, I'll post some new pictures after I swap out the fork, stem and headset. Cheers.
