I remember the first mt bike I built too.....

If the bike geometry is setup intentionally for the fork to be backwards then that would be genius. Disk brake on right side front prevents QR wheel from coming off under hard braking. It would tend to go up & into the dropout instead of down & out.

Needs mud!

Super nice bike though. Looks light.

the fork isn't on backwards, the stem is facing the wrong way. I guess its the same, but I don't see how a fork can be on wrong. Just the stem.

that bike is cooler than my SUV!

Of course it's backwards! Negative trail helps stabilize the bike at speeds over 100mph. With that, for sure, GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!! :)

What he said... Backwards fork can't be too good for the handling...
