Mike Pofahl came by the shop today. He's been working on a revised front end for the 36er for me. This should solve two problems that I've found with the bike, excessive bar height, and fork flex fore and aft. True to form, he has found and fabricated a more elegant solution for my original design, and he brought the beginnings of it in. It's gorgeous, simple, and should just kick ass! Projected time frame is a month or so, with it being ready in ample time before the Big Wheeled Ballyhoo in June. We will have both of our 36ers there for test rides, hopefully making people smile as much as last year.
