I understood that kona never produced a Ti P2 as the prototypes were just far too springy in all the wrong directions?
I'm lucky because I've got a titanium P2. The fork works very fine and give better feelings than suspension fork. On other hand, it's more precise than the first suspension fork
It's an amazing fork !
I've got 2 stories
The first : in 1992, a friend came from Canada and rode on a full dream titanium HeiHei. One day, he had an accident in Paris and bumped into a car with his bike. The fork bent but didn't break, and my friend is still in good health. I'm not sure that the story would end in the same way with a chinese fork.
The second : A friend, in contact with these chinese titanium makers made me a copy of the ti Velocity stem. I rode it for the OWMTBC in Wales a few years ago. This stem wasn't stiff and bent in all directions. EdEdwards said me : ”Brave man“
. I have changed it for real Velocity titanium stem : same geometry, same tubing diameters… but the stem is stiff enough for being rode.
So, you could buy these Chinese copy of P2 but don't expect to get the same quality of the Sandvik work…
Well… it's really not acceptable…
