I managed to get some really nice Columbus steel forks off ebay, but annoyingly I didn't consider the steerer tube length, and so needless to say it had been cut too short for my frame!

And so apart from those, ebay has virtually nothing!

Does anyone even make lugged steel forks anymore?

Cheers

Alex

Any framebuilder will knock you up a set.

LBS might have some hanging around..........we used to buy them with long steerers as they were a doddle to cut down and re-thread :D
