Thanks Nader. If I only had your photography skills I'd be happy.

Take a quick spin, hit the front brake and then call me from the hospital... Otherwise trim your QRs and you've got a nice bike right there.

I know... One does not simply ride a Manitou FS. Look but don't touch. (strip club rules on those).

I'd be careful even with that TBH. Rumor has it they can crack if you look at them funny.

Beautiful build BTW.

The headset cups also required about .250mm of reaming to interface with the headtube without cracking it. So far, so good!

Still no cracks!

How did you do that? with a machine tool or manually?
