Lurching into the future?

“What?!” I hear you cry, “Just what is going on with those forks Dave? They appear to have squidge built into them!”
Well yes, you’re right, they do. Quite a departure for me I’ll admit, but seeing as quite a few race organisers have got their acts together over the past couple of years and have started putting decent courses for endurance races together, combined with the ever increasing Daftness of the Daft Rides we JMC types have been creating (stay tuned, there’s a couple of absolute belters coming up!) means I thought I’d give suspension a go.
I might end up hating it and revert back to some lovely carbon rigid forks, who knows, it’s an experiment innit 😉

Everything else is pretty similar to what I’m used to/like already; the Lurcher frame has the same angles as the aluminium ScandAl, which is ace and the finishing kit, while being rather blingy, isn’t overly radical in size or shape and everything falls to hand naturally.

Can’t wait to get the miles in 🙂

  1. I wasn’t thinking the squidge. More the colour. Please start again.

  2. To be fair the frame colour was chosen for me…

  3. Frame colours ace. I meant the fork colour with that frame colour. Sort it!

    Oh and good luck ;0)
