Trying to replicate the original Pepperoni fork, which was super fat and black......so a Trust Message it is!


Also wheels are coming on strong...

Oh my! Love the pink i9s. Did you keep the original geo or go a little updated?

I was going for i9's but they are actually Chris Kings. Got them to hold the ltd edition hubs until they released microspline.

Geo, is very similar to the original. The steeper than normal/currently fashionable head angle (68 degrees) should suit the characteristics of the Trust fork really well.

Hey Ted??

I decided to let Brad suprise me with the finish. The aim is a Klein-esque paint job, fading brushed to polished titanium, thats what i cant wait to see as I have no idea how it will come out.

Any new ebay purchases for you?

Please do the old school rain storm paint (Klein)......the color chaning ones were cool and all (Orange?)...but the Rain Storm...almost as nice a a Colonago, almost.

Just my 2 cents but I'd never paint Ti, looks awesome raw.

It won't be painted, but using the 2 contrasting finishes (matte Vs polished) like you would with paint.

If you are confused I will post the result when I see it.

Raw? My custom full polished (mirror) Litespeed would debate that :-)

Half and half? For instance, when Litespeed made frames they knew were to be polished, I guess they started with a different (thicker?) Tubeset. This was from person @ ABG who would know....real?

I just meant not painted, polished is raw i.e no paint.
