Nice to see some more pics of the frame. I only saw a few on LAFixed. I know you went with the carbon fork, but that steel fork would looks so good...

Agreed...but I am thoroughly enjoying the carbon fork along with the added weightloss.

I do miss the straight bladeness.

Looks great but here are my thoughts...

Although the Enve is a far better fork than the Ritchey, I think the curved blades of the Ritchey looked better with the frame than the straight Enve. Also the ENVE logo is so out of place on such a classic looking frame. I'd wet sand the fork to remove the ENVE logo.

If you don't want to get into sanding the fork at the least you need to peel off those Ritchey decals from the rims. Let the frame do the talking not the components.

BTW, good job on picking up those Tune/Ritchey wheels from tip. I'm a big fan of Tune hubs. I've had 3 wheelsets built with them.

The fork I originally planned for this build was a straight blade so I much prefer the enve, I think its the best looking fork on the market and...I just love straight blade forks.
Odds are I will re-lace the tune hubs to A23's.

Opinions are like....that bike looks great with the Enve fork, much better than the Ritchie or the steel.

Did you change the angle of the bars/ hoods? It looks insanely uncomfortable. I post as onemisterchristian on lafixed. I'm loving the majaco. Mark is such a solid dude. He used to live right around the corner from me. His craftsmanship is amazing.
