Wow that's nice. I just got my Scale 960 on the weekend & wish I had that frame now. What is it ?
I find I'm leaning forward more than my last bike, so need to investigate setup a bit more. I assume it's the Scale Geomontry. How are you finding it ?
For a second I wondered what the hell you were on about with "snow" and then remembered you live in Japan .
Nice bike .
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.
There is almost nothing better than riding over fresh snow, listening to it under your tyres....UNTIL you hit ice.
Something you wont have seen many of and the biggest bike I have ever owned travel wise.
Will ride her later this afternoon.
Life gets in the way until then.

I think that is about it
I do like the look of those.
This is my favourite bike and favourite pic of it.
It's a strut fork. Designed to flex and provide "give" without the pedalling losses from a regular suspension fork.
They're usually found on ti frames with 29er wheels.
One of my occasional riding partners has one. The fork and frame flex gives him about 35mm of effective suspension travel and combined with light low tread height 2.4" rubber is a comfortable and efficient fire trail ride.
And it's very very light - better than most conventional hardtails.

I will take your word for that.
I dont believe it gives any flex whatsoever.
It basically looks very cool and keeps my handlebars the required distance from the wheel.
My frame definitely flexes though.
I can feel it when I get on the bike.
