Hey Joe

Not sure its an IRD as I have an IRD on the Fat ti and its different.

Some people reckon its a RS1 crown but I dont think it is....

Bontrager - maybe?

So the Bontrager comp ran a rigid leg then?

As I couldnt work out where the crown was from, I didnt know whether it was really strong enough to support a pair of rigid legs.

Bonty Comp was a triple clamp rigid cromo fork.

IIRC there were 2 types bonded / bolted dropouts and canti "bosses".
Bolted only (less sure about that).

They then used the crown to house RS mag 21s etc that they put on the Race & Race lite bikes with the suspension adjusted Geo. The crown is pretty rare.

Scroll down to "crell" on there, you'll see my CrMo Comp fork to see what one looks like.
