:cool: I bought it for a while at Logcabineer, but I never took the time to put it here.
Like Logcabineer, I ride regularly with. that's why he put XT M7000. I preferred to put it back with the XTR M900, here are the beginnings ...

Re:

I searched for a moment, but I ended up finding a stem CBR for mount on my Newsboy.
I was lucky to have a Titanium Kona P2 in the garage ... the whole thing is not bad, I would see in time.
The bike is expected for suspension suspension corrected. P2 Ti is not (395 mm). I machined a shim to have the right author.

Re:

I found that with P2 titanium it was a little bland.
I found a fork that suits him better I think.
A bonded steel-titanium composite fork. The set is more armonious and the Specialized saddle is more in agreement.
Your opinion ?

Re: Newsboy #75

This is a fantastic build, interesting how the stell/Ti composite fork changes the ride over a plain Ti fork.

Great balance of black and silver :)

I am happy that you appreciate.
I also find the whole thing more balanced.
I note for the fork, you will be the first warned.
Small pictures of the fork alone.

It's a mystery to clear up, if someone has an idea ... it's up to you to tell me.
