The JGRMX bikes are always interesting to check out, because they're not afraid to tackle all sorts of new ideas. For example, check out the custom fork lugs that they've worked up for their front suspension components. (They also do their own triple clamps.)

We dig the Works looking finish on these. It also makes you wonder what they've got going on internally. We also like that these guys are always tinkering and looking for a competitive advantage, and that they've got the skill and resources to make it happen.

But the fork lugs are a relatively minor project compared to what they've got going on with the rear end. Don't go looking for off-the-shelf suspension coponents on Josh Grant and Justin Brayton's bikes. JGR has been busy working up their own shocks. Here's the left side...

...and the right side. It's not super-visible, but the threaded preload adjuster has a series of set screws that can be used to lock it in place. No double-jammed preload adjusting rings or hammers and chisels here. Are these goodies that will be added to the rapidly expanding list of goodies from JGRMX's hop-up business? That remains to be seen.
