Wanted ritchey wcs 26 inch matte carbon forks

Can’t find these anywhere on net
Anybody got some willing to sell

Matte black

I know I can get exotic or other Chinese versions - but they are inherently glossy - I don’t want shine

Cheers

Jules

Re: Thread to tell everyone what bike gear you've just bought !

I bought some gore Tex gloves for 12 notes
And spent 150 on red tannus airless tyres - would love to know how to post images !!

Re: Wanted - ritchey wcs rigid carbon forks - disk

Or any other carbon forks as long as they are matte black

I have looked at the exotic ones but I don’t want the carbon weave gloss
Just can’t find these in a 26 anymore
The fall from grace for a 26 after so many years is incredible

grass is greener phenomenon i think
the move to double chainring in essence

i am a marketeers wet dream with that xx shoot, in hindsight i wish i would have waited, rather than building the frame up before the advent of 10 speed

can totally empathise with that
the whyte did cost me a bomb, and i think i am being daft
not to mention that i would probably be unable to ride a new bike- i would defo lose a limb if i brought another bike into the house- wife would fill me in

1150g according to the whyte marketing material
not really concerned with weight so much, as i am hardly light myself- i just think the scott is really aesthetically pleasing

i could just switch everything over to an xx groupset, but for some reason my head cannot reconciliate that much for a groupset at the moment

at least I get a complete bike with the scott
torn, proper torn

i think they are practically sold out for this year- so could be an issue or a rarity finding one to test ride

i have a gut feeling to keep the whyte and stop being a magpie and coveting new shiny things.
but that scale is a looker- perhaps it is the silly white tyres i am attracted to

with my company it is purely reimbursable- it is not a loan, they will reimburse up to a maximum of £330 on sporting equipment- so give or take a few quid would equate to about £250 after tax

apologies for any offence caused

would i still have been breaking the law if the chap had the receipts to give maximum i can claim from company is £330 which is taxable anyway all i am trying to do is recoup some cash from the 1250 i spent on the bike- the only thing half-way dodgy is whether the company would reimburse on a second...

i survived :-)
a few wobbles but managed to stay on

rather subjective, but even after 30 mins, i really like the eggbeaters, i am just hoping my premature ejection problem goes away :-) (sooner be a wuss than scratch or smash my carbon)

bit nervous, i get my back tomorrow, got eggbeaters on it, never used SPD's, and my bike shop is 4 miles away- so if i dont get on with them, i have a long walk home :shock:

going to find a park with some grass before i embark on my journey home, as vast majority is a NSL route

wish me luck
