That fork is hideous on what is a spectacular bike! Is there any difference in the 80th anniversary stuff or just limited edition marking ploy?

I appreciate the brutal honesty here :D .

I tend to hold on to my toys a long time so I wanted a forever bike, plus I wanted something different to what I currently have on my stable (Carbon, Steel & Aluminum frame bikes). So naturally Titanium frames come into mind & looking at some of the very best titanium frames, you can't ignore Moots from Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Alpha Q forks come standard on pre-2011 Moots, I feel the fork matches the 3T Ergonova LTD bars with the grey graphics. The red Q logos on the fork complements the bits of red on the saddle, pedals and group set, but sure I would have preferred the newer Moots fork with matching silver paint.

Wow. Great build. (Seeking napkin for drool.)
Fork looks fine and probably performs well too. ENVE is the rage right now, but you have a solid component there.
If the colors on the fork bother you, ask Moots if they can repaint it in the matching color.
But in al honesty, I would not want any downtime on a bike like that. :beerchug:

Very nice choice in componentry.

I too agree with the peanut gallery about the fork. The large blades look disproportionate to the finer titanium tubes on the rest of the frame and the red near the dropouts overwhelms the colour scheme as there is not enough red anywhere else.

That said, as long as the ride is smooth, whatever blows your hair back
