What's up with AME (Alpha Q fork company)?(5 posts)

What's up with AME (Alpha Q fork company)?SS_MB-7
Jul 5, 2002 4:20 AM
I'm considering the AME Alpha Q cyclocross fork, but their website has been unreachable for at least 2 days due to a sever error. Are they still in business? I'm trying to find the specs for the fork (rake, axle-to-crown); a list of dealers; etc. Do they have a 1-800 number I can contact them through instead? Or, can someone please provide at least the fork specs?

Also, are they affiliated with True Temper? Because, it also appears that TT's website is unreachable with the same server error.

Ride Hard,
Mike B.

PS....any feedback on the AME vs Wound-Up fork? (nm)SS_MB-7

Alpha Q forks are now owned/manufactured by True Temper. They are definitely still around. Here is the info you are looking for:

axle (center) to crown: 395mm
rake: 47mm

Call Bicycle Sport (Charlotte, NC) they have many in stock. Toll free 1 866 335 0323.
Thanks! (nm)SS_MB-7
