I just noticed that there was more to that question. I have since moved the ring to the inside and it seems to be a tad bit quieter.

on the inside as well at one time. chainline was excellent, smooth and quiet.

Every time I hear the name

Every time I hear the name Tom Sawyer I think of the keyboard/guitar solo part from Tom Sawyer, the song of course. Rad bicycle, I kinda want a Rush.

Even though I don't really listen to Rush, I kept humming that on the way to school. Haha.

I wanted to get that chromed

I wanted to get that chromed fork when I first built up my bike, but I've never been able to get around a chromed fork with any amount of rake not in the crown. That's just me though. Nice looking bike so far.

I had originally intended to order a straight blade soma fork and go threadless. Saturday night my dad said he was going on a "gay" ride in the morning, and that I should build this up that night. He had this fork laying around and told me I should use it. He wanted to put it on his kilo(https://velospace.org/node/26767), but the headtube was too large. I might end up ordering it eventually, but for now, why not use whats available?
