I think that you guys did an amazing job on that bike, but I do have a couple of questions:

1) What cranks did you go with?

2) Why did you choose to go rigid rather than using a suspension fork?

Howdy Daner,

Yao Ming's bike has Custom RaceFace 190mm cranks. Reason for the fork: Noone would take the risk and make a custom steer tube for their suspension forks.

The monster fork was built by Vicious Cycles.

Interesting. I would have thought that White Bros would have done that for you.

Can't wait to see some shots of him on the bike!
