I saw this a while ago but it is now for sale. I would love to try one. I would not love to drop $2700 USD on it.

Thoughts? New standard for forks on its way?

If my lotto numbers hit I'll buy us both one to test out.

I've always loved linkage forks. A longer travel version of the Message on my current monstrosity would be awesome. I'm all for anything that makes the longest bike look even longer. I'm going to sit tight awhile and see how these shake down.

Agree. Once it hits 150mm at $1500 I will consider it.

I have an AMP fork cirqa 1991.....it is/was awesome.

I'd give the a Message a try but at the price of a new bike, I'll pass.

Formula Nero R 29 but they messed up the offsets. Wonder what C.Porter has for crown on his bike?

I read an article somewhere (PB?) that Porter was machining his own custom crowns, appeared to be using Fox forks (lowered 40's I think)?

I read somewhere (I forget now) that it was awesome on small bump sensitivity not so on big hits. Needs more development time maybe?
