Cane Creek Lowers Price on Helm Fork
That could be tougher than you think. Think about all the different adjustments. So you pre adjust everything. Let someone else duct tape the thing. Number them and roll. Oh and you have a small problem with the Fox. You duct tape them all but i think the kashima coating kinda gives away which one is the Fox. I personally think the results could be very interesting however.

Review: Orange Stage 6 RS
Its kind of a look you like or not all i think. However i was a bit surprised when i saw the price. That thing is almost 7000 dollars. Thats a lot of money for an aluminium bike. I dont question how good the bike is. Im sure its really good. But is that price justified? Go to any main bike manufacturer. Trek. Specialized you name it. And youre going home with a really good carbon bike for that money. (Environmental reasons aside). Why would i say i dont want a Trek or a specialized, or a Santa Cruz. Instead ill go with this? See my point? This doesnt have to be good. is has to be THAT good.

First Look: Trust Performance's $2,700 Carbon Fiber Linkage Fork
Well it looks a bit weird. Like it snapped ad the headtube. Thats what makes it look strange to me. Perhaps if the crown (its basically the crown all the way to the bottom) Was attached straight on the steerer tube it would look better. But you would need a Crazy slack head angle to get that front wheel in the same spot. (and that might even cause bad wear on the headset bearings). I dunno. I think well get used to it.

The Mega is still one of the best looking FS bikes out there IMO.

Video: Designing & Manufacturing a Bike Frame
@shirk-007: Have to say. That is DOPE. Thats honestly amazing really. But isnt the geometry a bit extreme?

Bike Check: Andrea Garella's Custom-Made Ancillotti Scarab 29er - Superenduro 2018
@adespotoskyli: What i meant was that because the Ancilotti is shiny the welds would be more noticable. I know that Rose do make really good frames indeed. And the welds are spot on. But its also has way fewer welds to begin with. The Ancilotti frame is the complete opposite. It has welds basically everywhere. (i mean look at the frikin seat tube) That makes it look a bit messy but the welds themselves dont look bad. There are just a lot of them. There are all sorts of bits and pieces welded to it.
