Another Progressive Thread
Gotta add my name to the list. Late yesterday my new Progressive front fork springs came in and I installed them today. Just a 3 mile ride to the market and back and I was grinning like an idiot. (there's any doubt ??)
Without question, that's the biggest single difference I've made on that bike. Front end dive on braking is gone - it goes down about 3" on a hard stop and that's it. Along with the 6.6kg rear spring, the bike handles like it's on rails. Feels very solid, but very well damped and is a pure pleasure to ride.
If you're on the fence about spending the bucks on this or that, go with these. I'm amazed.
P.S. New Cycra front fender came in, too, and mounted it today but don't have decent pics up yet. It looks great and just what my mind's eye pictured. I like it.
