Fork needed...Farmpunker
Feb 5, 2003 1:28 PM
Hey,
My Shaman build is moving along nicely. What I'm stuck on is a fork. I just completely blew an ebay auction for a Kinesis inch fork that would have been perfect (left for an hour, came back, outbid, auction ended). And Kona Project 2 forks, my initial choice, don't come with inch steerers. There's an inch Indy Fab on ebay, starting at $100, which is about what I wanted to spend. Less, perferably, since I want to go cheap for now and save up for something light.
So, I don't know if this is the proper procol or not, but does anyone have an inch fork for sale? I kind of want to stay away from Surly.
And, yes, I checked this site's classified section. Good choices for cross in inch and an eighth. Not much else.
Anyone?

If you're willing to consider a used fork, keep checking the ads for the Project 2--the ones on the '99 Jakes had 1" steerers. The '98s were also 1", but they had curved legs.

Farmpunker.....CXWorld had the matte black 1" carbon Empella fork for 259.00....that would look good with the curves of the Aegis....I have one on my bike and it is great and supple for the races here in CO. They also carry an Empella aluminum version for 135 in the three different colors.....

Good luck

I have a 1 inch indy cross fork. The fork has never been ridden. The steerer was cut too short for my frame so I have a perfectly good fork sitting around. I am not sure exactly how long the steerer is. The color is dark green. Let me know if you would be interested or not. Thanks.

Thanks for the offer. I've got a couple leads to go through before I get back to you.
