Wow! What's the small tube near the bottom bracket - cable routing for the rear brake?
Yeah - it has internal routing for both derailleur cables as well as the rear brake. The entry point is higher up the downtube, between where the two seatstays join it.

That has got to be the sweetest piece in your collection...and that means alot coming from someone with a Willits obsession.

Can't wait to see it out on the trails....geared or SS?

I don't know about that.....



Unlike poker, one of a kind can be the winning hand in bikes......but when you have all the cards anyway it doesn't matter and Term plays with a full deck.

That's my favorite bike for sure! Can you believe it's still work-in-progress? I have very high expectations of the ride when it'll finally be done... hopefully next year. :)

welcome to the club... :cool:
really nice fork! congratulation. i look forward to see the complete bike, because i know what you planned to do. ;)
Better late than never, eh? It has been a long time waiting to get the "perfect Newsboy for me". :)

BTW, do you have a Newsboy T-shirt to go with your Newsboy?

WOAH... besides knowing how much it cost, how does it ride? Especially when compared to a titanium fork without the "struts"?

Thanks!!
It all costs a fairly shiny penny. :) ...and I haven't had a chance to ride the strutted fork yet. I've ridden plenty of other titanium forks though and this was completely custom to my specs based my experiences - so hopefully it'll ride fantastic for my riding style.

That has to be one of the hottest bikes I have ever seen! That fork is incredible; about how much would one of those run?
Thanks! The forks sort of vary on pricing depending on how you get them built, but this one was $625 as seen.

I have a medium and a large Newsboy t-shirt... I think we could probably work something out so that you can have the medium if you'd like. :D

Robin who? You'd need to be Robbin Banks to get up to the caliber of collection you have goin on. Some day I have to get the tour of your vault, I promise to wear a bib.

Also Term, time to update the avatar with a new pic of Tia isn't it? I am sure she is much cuter now.....or better yet send along a few wallet sized!
