I would think that anything too "butted" on forks would be a bad idea because it's just gonig to create really bad weak points where they will snap like Tanakas do...?

I just don't see how you could get the weight that low and maintain a feasible weight to strength ratio.

does'nt look like it.. maybe a typo..

so they reduced another 78g from the V3?
double butted to triple butted, thinner diameter legs and integrated dropouts -39g on each leg.. that sounds ok. Fly has got the butted technology down and with these integrated dropouts its just even better. Check there street forks, also triple butted and integrated dropouts but 918g.. they do have to be stronger... but I would trust these forks.

Really nice looking flatland fork.

5mm thick dropouts,7075 top bolt instead of 4130 (for weight savings),steere tube is machined inside and outside 0mm offset or 18mm/minimal offset.

0mm offset with top bolt = 2.0 pounds but according to FF they are only 1.72 pounds...hmmm.

18mm/Minimal offset w/top bolt = 2.11 pounds

http://www.suelobmx.com/fork.html

And they only cost $120

They could have made them with removable brake mounts instead of welded but I'm not going completely brakeless at this point in time lol.

Seriously. Modern forks have removable mounts. That's all I'm saying.

Mine last for 2 years already. Suelo is good looking fork - competitor for Tanaka but breakmounts should be removable
Better to ride not so smooth but with your own style, than trying to be a copy.

I personally don't like removable mounts. Since I don't run brakes why do I need these holes in my fork where cracks develop...

If you are for real, you probably spend enough time on your bike that there's no time left for talking sh*t on message boards.

Of course, if all you do is talk sh*t on message boards, you're probably not as good or as cool as you think you are.
