Love it..... apart from the steering damper which only appears to damp the right end of the oscillation... on left lock there will be little to no damping effect as the motion of oscillation is almost at right angles to the damper. and it appears to be mounted using a flimsy bracket.

Other than that, nice little muscle bike for someone.
I wonder if the damper has enough travel that you could flip that fork clamp to the other side?

Shit, I didn't realize how much money I spent on putting this together


I don't even want to start tallying the Z1 receipts

It's all to do with the swing of the leg regards the mount to the frame. Fat bikes with skinny fronts throw up lots of problems regarding fork to frame dampers and it's magnified by short throw dampers like the one in question.

CAPTAIN AWESOME (fuck knows why his name has to be shouty) is prolly pm'ing you right now with a cheeky offer of $2k..... tell him to go fuck his hat, you want three...... after a bit of barter and banter he'll prolly offer you two and a half and you'll both have a merry christmas......

He wants it..... you've just got to sell it to him....

It's two weeks before xmas and he wants to sell it..... If I was the buyer I'd bring you with me... If I was standing next to the seller I'd say take your flat bed and find an $800 hat to fuck.....
