Been looking for a good 1" fork to fit to a 1990 Explosif and have found a pair of Tange Switchblades in the States - problem is, with shipping here, they're a little more than i'd budgeted for.. So, how much are they worth? As if they're a bargain, i'll get them!

cheers!

There was/is a red set in the classifieds a week ago. I thought about them for the Wiskas but it really has to be UK made forks for this :lol:

Here it is

Lovely if you can handle the red.

Please buy these as they keep tempting me and I really shouldn't.

I think he was after £50 and is in La-andon-innit.

Hmmm, well the seller's asking $125 shipped to the UK, so...

The problem I've been having in finding forks is that this Explosif has a 160mm head tube, so needs quite a long steerer, and this has been the major stumbling block in finding forks for it...!

I've just bought a pair off the forum for pretty much £50. given the exchange rate at the mo $125 including shipping is probably about right :)
