Looks like a joint to me.

Why did you choose v brakes over calipers though?

Sorry to just now be responding J.Poc, the White's are light, super stiff but I'm too afraid to take pavement drops on these like I would Cro-Mo! If you can land your hops nice and bring the front end down easy they are probably strong enough but I'm 225Lbs and this bike is really delicate for my sizerolleyes.gif

No worries on timing. smily_headphones1.gif I have a '13 Jamie Exile Sport which comes with a pretty beefy frame. I made the move to some hybrid tires and I think a rigid fork will really do me good for some weight savings. I'm pretty content on being 200 lbs (6'2"), so not much change going to happen there. wink.gif

Just returned from a casual warm-up 13 miler. Significant because it's my first day out in appx 11-12 months, due to a couple of surgeries and other life interrupting events. 

 

All-in-all, it was a good day wink.gif... and good to be back!

haha I remember buying a carbon bottle cage over an aluminium one, I pointed out that the few grams didn't worry me, as me, the bottle cage and the bike weighed less than the salesman did...
I'm only 140pounds, so I'm not too concerned at small weight differences in components really

Swapping out my suspension fork for rigid one could save me around 4 pounds. We're not talking grams here. wink.gif

Ti Fork.

What does that flexy weigh Redcar? these White Brother's are just 1.6Lbs. It's pretty tough finding suspension forks under 3.6Lbs and for me two pounds out front is really lightening it up and saving my shoulders a huge workout.

Ebay UK has some with weights listed. Mine was on the bike when I purchased it. The original owner told me but I forgot.

I was just wondering how much lighter it might be than the light Rockshox which weighs 3.7Lbs. I'll see what I can find on the baybigsmile_face.gif

The difference though is I don't know how those new ones flex. Mine has a head piece which is two piece and allows for flex. These new ones are all one piece?

Awesome, hard to believe they can make a suspension fork that light!
