I'm considering putting a slightly longer fork on my 92 Dynatech MT4 frame to be able to run a slightly wider tyre than the 2.4" I have fitted. An UGLI fork is one option I'm looking at, because at 395 mm (axle to crown) I figured it should give an extra 10 mm of tyre clearance over the 385 Max Drive fork I now have fitted. The UGLI also looks awesome, is light, and of course is consistent with the Dynatech brand
.
However, I remember the UGLI has an unusual crown design, with a protruding bulge below where the steerer is bonded into the crown. Has anybody measured the distance from the axle to the bottom of the under crown 'bulge'?
