I was going to use my Z3's but bought these a month or so ago, and when i started building it last nite, i thought they looked quite good, have yet ot test them to see if they match the rear action

changed the forks to some Z2 X-flys, and put on a black seatpost and silver marin stem (identical to the stem on other RTS-3 so same reach) , along with Disc Drive pro, and Spinergy from original build

I find that those forks lift the front too much . the bike looses its racing look .

what are you doing with the other forks , selling them ? :roll:
