Very nice! You have this fork right? - http://store.somafab.com/sostbltrfo.html
Do you have any side/profile shots? I'm curious how that fork affects the top tube angle. I think the pake straight blade fork they recommend yields a bit of an up-slope

hey thanks, yep that's the fork, I suggest you buy it from this shop: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopping...

This is my local shop and they rock, less expensive, plus you will get great customer service and quick shipping, they really have their stuff together. I've heard that ordering from Soma can be problematic. I for sure have some side view pics, I will try to PM them to you.

top tube angle is virtually parallel with the ground with this fork, It's a perfect fit for this frame in my opinion.
