Is it cheap? A rigid fork that would fit 27.5 x 2.6 or so and disc breaks would be nice

Got to 56F this afternoon. I wore shorts for my leaf activity.

I guess I have 3 Manitous now.

This is the nicest one. Crabon Arch, MRD superlight crown. Super smooth and light!!!

Yeah I left that thing hanging in the carport when I moved out of the last house. Couldn't think of anything else to do with it.

1) You have a mystery photographer (or drone?).

2) Property owner has liability without proper guardrails.

#Thrifty

Since Tuesday I now own a pour over and a French press. Haven't tried the new pour over yet. Tomorrow I will and a report will be duly filed. It was purchased by my wife and is not the guru approved V60. I'll not file divorce papers until I try it out. Then I'll file.

With all this password talk, I guess it's time to trot this out.

Thank me later.

Seems you should be able to remember back to post #10819, when the debate was settled.

1) Not my problem.

2. Grabbed a stray on the trail.

I put foam bar padding which didn't help much but then I got a Rock Shox fork. It was a piece of crap but way better than the bridge girder fork that was on there.

Here is my last KHS at Sycamore Canyon. It has a Manitou shock and fork. I sold it last year.

A buddy of mine had a 7000. It rode like my Cannondale - brutal. Not quite Klein brutal, though.

Not enough information to make the determination.

It was magnitudes harder than leaf activity.
