Fork
Fox
36 FLOAT Factory 2020
This one feels way too soft off the top to me. Honestly liked the feel of a 2018 NA2 fork better, so I modified the spring to mimic the older fork

Additional Info

My midlife-crisis bike.  It's not as fast as 29ers but that's ok by me - I don't race, I don't Strava.  The bike was built to suit my riding style (finding weird natural doubles and side hits, tech climbs, general trail tomfoolery) and reliability.  Since I'm over half-century old and this little blue bike makes me feel like a young man, I named it "Viagra".  Having fun on the bike to the best of my ability.
