Ted's new fork - artistic!



Ted needed a very short fork (~400mm) with big (well, ok, 2.1) tire clearance for his Primus Mootry (another Boulder bike builder). Then he apparently needed to take some really over the top artsy photos!

Hydros for drop bars will change cyclocross bikes forever. I for one will not miss cantilevers. Barf.

I'm strangely repulsed by everything that's trendy and wrong with that bike.

Yet somehow I'm also reflexively reaching for my wallet....
