"Are they having a laugh? £100 more expensive that the Reverb... "
"I wonder how they are going to justify the price gap"
They already do this with their forks?
Price yourself above everybody else, then your product must be better ..
Dear oh dear that mudguard ..
"if you were to take just 10mm off the front of the guard it would be 50% less efficient"
But you might be able to see where your front wheel is, rather than a fat peice of plastic
The Fox advert singletrack mag (pg41, issue 71) has a pick of fabien riding with the (or a similar) mudguard. Oh and the ground looks pretty dry
Also, they've mounted it under the fork crown? Thereby reducing the room for mud/clag/leaves/sticks/2.3" conti mud tyres/etc to get through?
"What the hell? cable up the side of the post? so right where my thighs are"
Oh and that lever, looking at it, it doesn't look like you can mount it under the bars at all?
So if you need/want to turn the bike upside down it'll sit on that lever, risking breaking it, same goes for if you fall off your bike
How much for a replacement lever? ..
