be patient, I've only seen one in years, and it went for about $500 US, with a super short steerer.

You could allways go for a cro-mo PII & get it sprayed to match.

One of the guys on here did it with a big 1" fork, looked very good on his Ti Fat.

look for completed items on ebay, or search the ebay watch forum (on this site), they were discussed on there. probs made such a low price due to the short steerer.

the steerer wasn't that short, just unluckily described in the auction.

the measurement was the max. head tube length, not the steerer length...

97ish Cro Mo P2's in the metallic grey colour turn up fairly often on eBay and the colour match isnt too far off against a Hei Hei frame.

What do you want to say? The 3 forks in the picture , aren´t they true TI Are they Cro Mo?

How can I konw the correct size (steerer or tube length) if my bike is a 19''?

(sorry my bad english)

no, those in the pic are true, Sandvik made Ti forks. He meant that the 1997 steel P2 forks which are painted metallic grey are regularly for sale and that those match the Ti frame pretty well.

For the correct steerer tube length measure the head tube length and add around 40mm for the threaded head set. Add more if you want to use a brake cable hanger and spacers.
