ha, and i thought i was the only one around prefering the lower-end acs 860 over the acs boa. the boa is fine brand new, but once the plastic seals around the bearings disintegrate, the arms will start rattling themself loose and you always notice only when all the bearings have fallen off; and they are next to impossible to find replacements for.

the new s&m forks' width and shape reminded me of odyssey's director forks, really wide up at the crown area, if odyssey's directors have the same rake, i would choose it over the s&m for obvious reasons (proven, thermal 41 treatment, cleaner look & hassle-free warrenty.)

The hole is to big for a centerpull brake but you could probably make an adapter to fit.


you need to run a step down washer...

Bingo. Are those S&M forks with that hole?  And is that a Boa?  Nice F'n ride Sin!


looks like a bulldog- type caliper to me, with plastic nut cover.
 
like byke would say:
 
pir does, lol;
 
the 860 bolt is flush at the front where it matters

Only if you like chasing tiny bearings around your garage instead of riding.  :-p

I remember being about 13 when i got my 1st boa, it was good as gold until I donated it to a friend. . . It's still in pieces with bearings nicely spread all around his shed :)
''let me tell ya something i did a front n rear wheel hang on the cloping on the slide of the spine, now i stick to street!''

''do you freestyle?''

However serious you take it general public sees us as just dicking about on 'kids' bikes, some people could do to remember that and smile a little.

Keep in mind those forks are just prototypes for the show.  Maybe they wanted to show something clean, brakeless and pegless.  Considering a good number of riders still use front brakes, I would be surprised if the production ones did NOT have mounts or at least the option.  Seems like a pretty bold move if they didn't.
