... as bb shell is a little wider than it should be :(

suggestions.. to go with 100mm reba fork, i think 1-1/8th not tapered.

Consider upgrading to a FS if there are some bargains going.

Lol.. its the obvious choice.. 2 problems:

1.. thats just what they'd be expecting me to do!.
2.. thats just what they'd be expecting me to do!

Joking aside, watching you bend your rear derailuer hanger put me right off... why the hell not use a disposable hanger like everyone else?? Oh, and I don't like the colour!!

On the subject of on-ones - since that looks like my pretty much my only option atm.. would a inbred perhaps be better suited to my 100mm forks?

Funnily enough i was just looking at the on-one whippet... the chinese one looks almost too good to be true; would it be worth paying the extra for the uk name/support ya think?
