Hi all
Can anyone identify the year of this fork? its different than the one on my bike and has a fully curved crown with no lugs, was it available as an alternative to the lugged crown version that is on most frames round 1989/90? or later, also when did they go from the barrel shaped rear brake bridge to the delta shaped one? or was that also an option alongside the traditional ones. Have trawled Google images and cant pin it down
Cheers DD

Answering my own question its earliest 1991 and the brake bridge is characteristic of frames built with Columbus MS I'm sure
