I think the elevated stay of the cromega will set the forks off well.

The Haro Ti.

With Lawill leaders on it it'll have that whole 'what the hell is that I've never seen one' thing that the US reports in MBuk used to have BITD. 8)

None of em, I feel the leaders would look best on an aluminium or carbon monocoque framed bike, they don't sound good on a Yeti for sure :?

send em to me, I'll stick em on the beasty :wink:

I think the leader would look best on a Fisher RS-1, but the Yeti is a company Mert also worked for, so that would also be a logical choice.
