No don't get me wrong I like the front end on Schmidtty. Apart from square edged ruts or deep ruts it handles really well. I just was watching how the forks moved & wondered if that was what the dreaded flex was that people talk about.

I think I get the answer but it would be hard to pick it up while moving wouldn't it?

As far as Schmidtty goes, I've dropped the recond gearbox off to a mech to reassemble.
Schmidt wil always be a cruiser however may make an appearance at a laid back this winter
