Anyone know where to get a 50mm raked fork?(4 posts)

Anyone know where to get a 50mm raked fork?cabinfever

I have a 2001 Fuji Team frame, 52cm, which was intended for use with a 50mm raked fork. Problem is, the Reynolds Ouzo Pro fork I want comes in a max of 45mm. Anyone know if this will make a tremendous difference in handling? Is anyone aware of any fork companies that produces a 50mm raked carbon fork?

Try www.WiseCycleBuys.com or give a call to William at (800) 362-9588. He can get it directly through Reynolds USA and save you approx $100 bucks. Bought one in May for a cross frame with a slack head tube angle, no regrets, great service. Good luck.

I got a ouzo pro from wisecyclebuys as well.
Agree, two thumbs up.
45mm rake will do just fine.
Thanks for the postcabinfever

Thanks. I actually already ordered the 45mm raked fork, so I was happy to hear this. I'm sure it will be fine in most situations. I do like to exceed 40mph sometimes on long downhills, and I've had problems with an older Fuji Team and headshake from the front wheel/bars.
