    well, the ibis hads blue bits, and the forks have red, so they will clash…. ?

    It'll look nice.

    'tis always the problem with white anything isn't it πŸ™ but you'd think mud and such would just slide right off the gloss, hopefully!

    How do you find the minutes by the way?

    Minutes are spot on lyons. Had a pair of 120s on my old orange Tazer and loved them . . . when I bought the white one I fitted 140mm Marz 55Rs – cracking forks for d/h but they were really too long for the bike and I found my front wheel washing out on the flatter twisty stuff. Fitted the 100mm Minutes at Christmas and it feels perfect – forks are super light and easily tuneable being air sprung . . . not as stiff as the Bombers they replaced but waay lighter.

    White bike with white forks looks ok to me…mate has a Pronghorn in white with some very light silver Fox forks (almost white)…also looks a good combination.

    Fashion victim – perhaps if it is being built up bit by bit…but if it's stock then you don't have the choice…

    I've got a stock Commencal Super 4.3 which is white with white forks and rims. I've added a white saddle and white pedals.

    (Obviously) I think white looks good.

    I don't think those Ibis full-suss bikes will every be pretty, but the white forks seem to go well with the white frame.

    Matching forks to frame is a bit tarty, but I will admit to having resisted so far swapping the black SID Teams off my Epic to be replaced by a set of grey Float 80RLT's I bought for it, purely 'cause they wouldn't look as good. I stuck the Floats on my Zion instead and they're a better match for the colour of that…

    My name is wheelz, and I am a fashion victim. I haven't bought any colour matched bicycle components for four weeks.

    I am, however, struggling to add contrasting forks to a new frame I've just taken delivery of, so this may not last!

    deluded, everytime I see your white HJ I want mine to be the same colour πŸ™

    Anyway, white frame white forks:

    Do they ride ok etc ..

    I now own Druid's Meta 5 πŸ™‚

    I use a Shimano SLX M665 with a 22/36 set up that works perfectly.

    The bike is like all others with Commencal's 'contact system' – tons of rear end grip.

    I hope mine works well with the Thors that I've ordered.

    White on White action here… Wasn't sure about the colour to start with but it has grown on me, looks great with a bit of mud splashed on it!

    I'm sure I've seen some white Nomads with white forks; honestly, that frame and fork will look chuffing gorgeous together, and on the plus side, the colour will hide any 'mess' when people get overexcited at it…
