    Gawd, that brake would rip the wheel clean off that fork.

    How'd he get it backwards? The crown isn't even on the back for goodness sake, it's not like it's a Manitou. :think:

    I sent him a message, but was all nice with it. Told him to try his bike with the fork reversed, he might decide to keep it. Looking at that super-long stem suggests that he's clueless. You guys please feel free to give him a bad time about it.

    I would argue that the clamp is correct, but the fork itself is backwards. Heck, I'm not even sure what fork that is...
