Gave this sucker a real test this past weekend with some spring melt trail recon. May have to change to an mtb crank for smaller rings but otherwise a pretty good all rounder. Tires clear out quickly which is a nice touch after slogging through peanut butter mud. Comfortable when carried on the shoulders as well. Can t wait to take the fucking fenders off!

The Capriolo got an update. Got some custom shortening and dampening by a buddy of mine at his shop Fast Bike Industries. They're predominantly a motorcycle suspension shop, but he does do mountain bike shocks and forks.

Fork has about 45 mm of travel. It looks like it has more but that fork bottoms out and has exposed stanchion well before hitting the crown due for tire clearance. Thing is stiff as shit from having so much stanchion in the lower but also the valving isn't anything close to what it was before, fast rebound, slow compression, not like a pogo stick (like it acted before) and perfectly suited to street riding where it just takes the edge off on drops and stuff....
