You're right Andrew, the '97 KK came (was that a stutter? :D ) with 100 mm Z1's so this model should be OK with 100 mm forks....

It probably would have been OK with the 100mm fork but I was after tight responsive handling and thought it rode (and looked) better with the shorter SID. Still fancy trying it rigid though. Anyone know of a Ti P2 for sale....

Ferkin cool mate, suspension schmension, that's what I say. I've not missed the Fox's I took off mine (except for the downhills......) :? Control leaves a bit to be desired but hey! What did they do years ago.....? Oh yeah, CRASH of course. :D

Do like it a lot mate!

You could take off that chainstay protector, singlespeeds don't suffer with chainslap. It would improve the looks too. :)
