    Man, funky headset, guess it's the "grease guard." Sexy looking frame, a friend of mine bought his Specialized off of eBay that shares the same geometry with this bike and he's doing well on it, 'tis a good beginner frame it looks like. The only drawback is I see is someone possibly hitting their foot on the front wheel when turned at an extremity. Good find. :sonic:

    yeah, its for greasing the headset. I have the same one on my bmx race bike. there are seals on the inside of it and an o-ring, so when you pump the grease in it pushes the old grease out from behind the o-ring. yo udon'[t have to disassemble the headset to repack it, and they're really smooth. WTB licensed the design from suntour. If i can find annother one, i'm goign to get it for my trials bike.
