You're behind the times...my Nomad definitely qualifies as AM.:D Your Bullit comment brings up a good point, though. The Bullit, and many others I'd bet, can go both ways depending on the build. Maybe even one of those travel-reduced VP Frees would qualify depending on the setup and use. I wonder if there will be any flame wars over the "what is" and "what isn't" aspect of AM? I can hear the hate and discontent now...LOL!

I'm liking it a lot... seals take forever to break in, though and it's not like the plushest for out there.

However, the stroke is nice and controlled... I'm daring each time more with this fork/frame.

The new '07 offerings look very nice... and they're supposed to be plusher than these '05 and older ones.

The thing is comepletely rebuildable and simple. Lots of tuning possiblities.... oil levels, oil weight, access to damper parts, spring combinations.

A bit porky and it binds some at full extension, but nevertheless it steers precisely. and it's stiff under braking.

Nice fork.

The Blade is a nice frame too... very capable bike. Much more that I can give to it.
