Very nice. I like the white fork with the frame's white graphics. Nice wheels, too!

hey thinking about a similar build just curiouse to know about how much that thing weighs in at?

It's 110mm but the axle to crown is 510mm so it's the same as running a reba at 100mm only you get 10mm more travel. It's a very nice fork and that extra 10mm really helps in the rough stuff.

I can't see in the photos if it is an "F" or "IMV"???
It's the fluid model. I don't much care for the complicated platform systems. They add weight and increase the chance of failure.

Wish a full season of dirt, mud and muck from a combination of XC, 24 Hour and 100 mile races I finally had a chance to add a photo or two.
