Bought these to fit on my DBR axis tt, but have decided to add some bounce instead (more modern pace rc39 at 80mm travel).

Took a bit of retrobike detectiving to figure out what these forks are, the conclusion is a set of single crown forks made by muddy fox and probably sold with their titanium frames. A set of dual crown versions were used on their 'interactive' full suspension masterpiece from 1993.

The forks are 1 1/8 and v/canto only, and have removable/movable brake bosses similar to pace rc31s so you could run them with 24 or 26 inch wheels with ease (not sure you'll be able to fit anything bigger as the a2c is 395mm (ish).

Steerer is 1 1/8 and 180mm. The crown race shim is pretty tall so you could eek out a few more mms if you used a shorter one.

Drop outs are lovely, crown is pretty unique.

Only flaw to the forks is that the legs aren't quite the same shade of ti (hard anodized alloy). I was going to try and polish them to a similar shade, or have the lowers sprayed black as the black/silver would look really nice, but so would other colours.

After £50 plus post. Would prefer uk post, had sold these only for the buyer to pull out due to the exchange rate. Will post overseas the price is the price, whatever that works out as after exchange rates are applied. The world economy is sadly not within my control ;)

Well done. You made a phone number very easy to harvest, by the right software, in a pointless post that isnt even funny.

That was a bit silly. Hopefully a mod can delete the number.

Forks have sold. Thanks for all the interest. Regretting selling tbh but at least they will now get some use.
