Considering the original intention was to break this to build the Cannondale - I'm very pleased with the outcome. Ironically, It's the Cannondale that will now get broken down as try as I might, the frame is just too small. I'm hoping for a result on the Saracen Kili and move all the parts over to that from the Dale.

When I can, I'll try and get a ride report for the Pine Mountain. A quick spin up and down the drive shows that the forks are working - definitely in the 'lock out' position although there's not a lot of difference between the 2 'movement' settings.

The only update I can add are a few pics showing the Orange toe straps - they finally turned up 3 weeks late!

Other than that.... it's complete! ;)

Thanks bkp :cool: - here you go!

Back on page 5 - my research bought up some tasty images of the Redline BMX that used the Browning suspension fork.

Turns out that those pics are bkp's and he kindly sent me these images. What a collection! :cool: :cool:

If any one has a Browning Fork for sale, or even a complete bike that has the Browning fork - such as a Marin or Fusion 0260 - bkp would definitely appreciate a PM!

Cheers.
