Have cut open an un-usable Sworks SL5 fork to check the quality of the carbon moulding inside.

Looks pretty good, no voids that I can see with the naked eye, reassuringly beefy around the crown area; it looks extremely strong at this point.

Have seen other carbon mouldings that aren't as good as this.

Chateau?! Yes, but the upkeep (on my own) is a nightmare. Want to buy it?! :D

Holy hell. I'm so jealous. Plus it looks like you are in Britanny.

That thing was probably 2 millions if you did not inherit it.

I'm sure the park and roofs are maintenance heavy, but you really, really cant complain....

Well spotted! Yes Finistere, Brittany, close to Quimper city centre. The gardens/woods are 38 acres. My current headache is wild boar coming at night to dig up the lawns.

No, not inherited, but I think you're overdoing the value. Property is cheap in France! We've been here 12 years.

Roof was replaced last year so that's good. The cycling here is excellent and the winters are mild, but can be wet....

No, maybe I'll cut open the other leg to check that too. But I won't be doing the frame just yet.... :shock:
