It's called a Lauf fork. Lighter than a standard design fork, never ridden one though so I can't comment on any other aspects.

So far with about 3 hrs of riding works great.Had Fox 100mm travel the Lauf is 60MM.
The single track i use it on is not to technical,rocky or roots so it flows very well.
It is 2lbs lighter than the Fox for hills and acceleration you feel the benefit.
If I was to go up to western NC, I would put the fox back on.[/img]

6'3" so fairly tall I guess? It's all relative though right? I have 3 sons that range from 6'5" to 6'8"!

Thanks!

Thanks! No, those are Cee Gees pads. I had them on my prior bars, and I couldn't live without them. I never even bothered to install the OE Alpha X pads.

I have been working on this for a while. 2010 Specialized Nosecone Shiv with modern accouterments. Paint by Hot Tubes. Front Derailleur hole and recess filled and painted, same with rear cable stop. Very clean. Hot Tubes just killed it for me.







Close up of the paint by Hot Tubes. Pictures don't do it justice. Lots of metallic flakes in the gold paint that reflect the sunlight:


Edit: Adding some pictures of the detail of the beautiful transition from matte to gloss on the seat tube

Oh good lord!!! I've always loved the nose cone shiv and yours is just hot! That frame will never age, still looks incredible

Edit-The only thing I'd change would be to black out the graphics on the crank arms, then it'd be perfect
