I just picked up one of these cheap and so far so good. Built up with mostly spares as a flat bar beater. The fork is heavy as hell but the frame aint bad.

I, too, suspected the heavy fork problem. After getting my Quest dialed in, it still feels "front heavy".

I find the fork very good, yes a bit heaver if you compare it to a Surly fork but quality wise it takes a beating. However I prefer a bit of front heavy for stability, I'm used to riding with a handlebar bag with my camera anyways, doesn't affect my style at all.

Nice! So far I think your bike is the only other Populo Quest on here besides mine. After some parts upgrades it's a decent bike for the money.

I agree, it's a hell of a deal for a 4130 chromoly frame! Even though I changed almost everything on the bike still great frame-set even for the $299 I paid.
