Nice bike tjk. Can you comment on the Kilo fork? I couldn't find any feedback


Sure :)
I´ll start with stifness, I can compare with Fox F32 and RS Sid 2009 both with standart QR and it seems to be way more stiff than SID a bit stiffer than FOX, about sensitivity it´s completely different level, not quite progressive as FOXand SID (with extra low preasure you can get it easily to hard stop) but the way it handles even small humps is amazing... I´ve never ridden stock XC fork with classic construction that works even close like kilo... well now I get to the lets say "strange" thing :) you have to realize that thanks to paralelogram construction fork dives not up side down, but it all moves "under" the frame ... it feels really strange at first :) but you can easilly get used to it, it does not respond to the pressure on handlebars it responds on terrain humps, but in the moment you sit on bike and fork dive to SAG it´s ok. I have Kilo 1.2 version simple Air shock with one air chaimber, sou you just inflate it on "right" pressure :) (I want it softer, so i use 95 PSI for my 85KG) and than you can only adjust rebound... thats all... it doesn´t have high speed compression but I don´t think it´s necessary on XC forks. Weight with uncut steerer is 1284g. well I couldn´t say if its better than classic constructed Forks (thanks to very high price), but i know one thing.. if you have mony and if you want it.. just buy it! you can only be surprised and pleased haw good it works... and secon most important thing, there´s no way you meet another one so easy 8)

(I have one Kilo 1.2 for sale if you´re interested :-))
