How's it ride with the triple tree forks?
I don't have any point of reference for a comparison to another style fork on a MAB,
I would say it rides well with no discernable flex while braking, IMO it's the way to go, I was not impressed with the steerer tube provided so I made a replacement, if I were to order them again I would get the chopper length and cut them to size.

That's good news, I get my new forks today so I'm excited to try them out. How long are the forks you got? I think mine are 24" I was thinking of the longer ones and cutting them to but with shipping and duty to Canada I went the cheaper route. I also found a st that had the dual riser for the handle bars instead of using a stem.
Thanks for the input. Your bike looks really good.
How much gas does that tank hold?

I'll measure the fork length when I get home from work, the tank is 3.5L and is tall but narrow enough to not interfere with pedaling.
What does the "duel riser" set up look like?

Here's a pic of the forks with the dual riser. I thought about these but figured it would require different handle bars for the dual clamps.
