Like Yogi Berra said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." (Yogi Berra, famous NY Yankee catcher, but even more infamous for his off-the-wall twists on cliche phrases). That fork is definitely high on the cool factor! :cool:

I don’t usually care for stretched bikes, but yours is pretty cool. The top tube chain seems out of place though, to me. Makes me want to get welding equipment.

Your vision is becoming reality quickly now! I love how the chainline runs through the frame. Bars are perfect too.

Ouch, you know there is a problem when you can use your pedal as a kickstand without even leaning the bike a little.

@Trm you are probably right but I don't want to add truss for the moment
@ Yep,Beric ! The first rods I have made are probably better.

Here is a video to show you the reinforcement I welded at the back of the primary fork.
It works well now, but the down tube is too low, I will try with the first rods, I can add some spacer on the springs too to get higher.
