What do you think?
David I find the alloy triple tighten the front up a bit and help the forks to work better. I have crashed the bike badly and broken bits around the forks such as the steering stem block and even the main chassis and the front rim and haven't even bent the steering screw. I think it holds the forks much better. You'd never bend the triples themselves I'm sure Dave.
