Thanks guys. The green is absolutely to tie in with the red on the other side and the white in the fork for the Italain flag.

Was the weapon of choice for the Warny. Puncture after 50km ended my chances of a decent result :( still finished and got my medal, no way was I having another DNF!

The Pink Panther was superb.

Ready for action

Well done on finishing Nick.
Must have been a hard day at the office with that headwind.

Thank fletch. Ride soon mate :thumbup:


And maj, I loved the shape however had an issue on where they positioned me when I was sprinting. Kept knocking my knees on the base of the stem. Change of bars and now no issue.

I'm digging the updates TP! The Enve wheels look downright mean. :thumbup:

Hey Tinea,

Just wondering what model enve fork you've changed in there?
1.0 or 2.0?
Stiffer?
Lighter?
Hows the handling and 'feel' of it?

Thanks ty-ro, they are mean as. And super quick!

tarz, went a 2.0. Great fork, but can I feel the 50g weight difference? :lol: no.

So in regards to stiffness etc compared to the 3t, how do you rate it?

Thanks nayr :)

And tarz, both great forks really. For mine the difference is certainly more in aesthetics than road feel. Although is possibly a tad stiffer.

i agree on the aesthetic part of that, im at the back end of a custom steel frame build and went for the enve fork mainly because i liked the company and what it was doing, but mostly because i feel the shape and style of it works better with the tubing i have chosen.

good stuff either way!

What did you change to? I'm not sure I understand this problem since the stem is the same height still right?
