Okay, I have to say that the paintjob, the 'OPS!' decals, and combination of the 3T's fork, makes it way cooler.
Nice!

ha, yeah, I couldn't remove the crown race off the old fork so I had to use a taller crownrace and my headset cap needs a microspacer but instead I put a 3mm spacer, ordering a new headset, should fix all of this thanks,lol

why dont you get the enve fork instead? it'll lookhella sick on your frame, I think its a lil cheaper than the funda

Posted about 7 years ago

Kevin_R

Kevin_R says:

The ENVEs look sweet, but they just didn't have the wide aero profile I was going for. Still a nice looking fork.

How the 3t fork
i was planning to get one or an unknown full carbon track

Posted about 7 years ago

Kevin_R

Kevin_R says:

I haven't heard much on the Unknown fork but the 3T is a great fork. It feels very stiff and is incredibly light. Very noticeable coming from an aluminum fork

Oh man.
Your good thing have so bloddy distaice of saddle to handle.
Very Very nice distance.
Looks like a your length is so long.

Kevin_R says:

Hey man thanks, I like that steep drop from the saddle to the drops. There's a pretty good mix of hills and flat land here where I live.

The protection cap cracked (plastic) and so I placed a spacer beneath it

nice build :)
how tall are you man? i'm thinking about getting a 56cm visp but not quite sure how it'll fit yet

Posted over 7 years ago

Kevin_R

Kevin_R says:

Thanks! I'm 6'1, the 56 is a size smaller than someone my height would get,which would be a 57 or 58,I think a slightly smaller is far more comfortable than one too large

your headset cap and lower headset doesnt seem right, it should be at least 1 or 2 mm gap

Posted over 7 years ago

Kevin_R

Kevin_R says:

You're totally right,below the top there's a spacer over the compression ring. When I had the top over the compression ring the top didn't fit right, cracked and so I put a spacer,works great but if you know of a more elegant solution let me know.

screamingfans

screamingfans says:

that spacer not from vp headset right? because that spacer doesnt match with your headset

Posted over 7 years ago

Kevin_R

Kevin_R says:

Yeah,they dont match,I think a micro spacer could do the job
