Without enough time on the Capra to make any definitive statements, after a couple of test rides I can tell you that it is most definitely NOT sluggish. Moving out, you really wouldn't think you're on a 170mm bike - but all the composure you could want ... more »

Uhm I was just referring to the team no longer being called "Evil CK"....bur rather "Evil WC Team"....it may or may not have been deliberate. Nothing Evil afoot here Big Bird!

No it won't, by why would you want it to be in the first place? You said you are shopping for a one bike solution, if you think you need a big dual-crown downhill fork for most of your riding, then you are probably looking at the wrong bike. If you want ... more »
