Graphics would usually make this a no go for me, but they go just right with his setup, i like it.

Cross post from Richmond trials (Discussion is about hs-33 forks, but the changes still apply) :

Rockman has made some design changes to the Spade forks for 2011. We've just received the 4bolt versions, and they look amazing. As you can see in the picture, the taper for the crown race is very gradual (you can barely see it!). The dropouts are also a little smaller than the previous iteration.

The steerer is also thicker near the crown area. There is a lot of material there.

Here are some pics of the matching tapered forks supplied with the grey Slate 3 tapered frame.

I think this is the first bike of yours which I actually don't like. Still I'm sure it rides very well (Y)

It took me a while to get used to the new graphics, but I'm starting to really like the way the bike looks now :)

How do you find rear Sticky Light? Compare it to regular Sticky or some Conti kevlar ones.

I like them a lot. It's more stable for me than the continental rubberqueen/trialsqueen. The compound might be slightly less grippy, but it's certainly more usable on angled and cambered obstacles. Overall, it's a more usable tire for me.
