Can you elaborate further on the CR500 KYB forks? Why is it not that great of a setup? Adjustment issues? Don't tell me the average rider can tell that these forks are 1 mm smaller in diameter compared to the latest USD

Didn't you get to reuse the XL wheel with the CR5 forks? Or is it the XRL wheel you will be using?

Yes, I've seen mentioned in various discussions on USD fork setups about the sub par performance of the CR5 USD forks, but nothing with the specifics in a nice list/summary. If anyone has a good link to such information, feel free to post it, I'll read it.
Hey GM, good to see ya!

I really don't know why they say that about the forks. Maybe adjustment issues? I didn't see any adjustment on the top caps. Could be some on the bottom; I haven't actually looked there yet.

Not sure which wheels I'll be using yet. I was thinking of using a CR5 hub and lacing a new rim and spokes to it. Whichever wheels I use will have new spokes and rims.
