Nope! Thats from MERT!

That is a Lawwill Fork!!

Made by the great Mert Lawwill using an awesome parallelogram design! I loved these forks back in the day. They never got the credit they deserved because they "looked different"

Also love Scot Nicols, Ibis was a great company back in the 90s! (BTW, Girvin sucked....)

My first Lawill (made of 4130 by Kosman's in san francisco) was able to climb one foot high sidewalk with out even looking but I guess that is why it broke after to many impacts so "Control tech" send me a aluminum version (They purchase the rights from Mert) but the fork was never the same even if it was much lighter

IBIS Rule Girvin Suck

And a IBIS with a Lawill is even better

Just went from this:


To this:


2009 Bianchi Vigorelli w/105. Really liking the steel ride so far. The Motobecane was a good bike, but too small for me, and I never was comfortable on it.

Got off work a little early today, celebrated my first fathers day as a father with a nice ride on the bluffs.

Never really considered myself a Clydesdale, but, as a newly retired rugby player (forward to boot) who am I kidding.

My bike's held up for 5 years now. I'm very impressed by the quality and by the fact that it's a small American company. Not some giant corporation.

not sure if this will work?


I forgot to take pics this weekend, but here's a pic with all the bikes in my stable! Pinarello Road, Ridley Cross (this pic doesnt do it justice), Ventana Mtn., Merckx "kick around cruser", custom Ti 26" drop bar Mtn. bike/cross monster.... The Merckx has a VERY short wheel base, which makes it very twitchy and not for the novice rider at all (unless you like crashing!)

Come to think of it, this pic doesn't do any of these bikes justice.....oh well....

First bike in over 16 years. Specialized Hard Rock Sport Disc 29'er. While not as fancy as some of the bikes here, it makes me happy and gets my fat ass back out and pedaling.

No, it works quite well.

For some odd reason, I'm reminded of the bikes I would see stuffed onto the back of Ricky's GS.
