I dropped of the shock shaft at the anodizers and picked up the fork parts. I was feeling pretty good until I noticed something....
The axle had threads, the axle clamp did not have threads.
Very recently White Brothers changed the design of the axle and disc side axle clamp, eliminating the threaded axle arrangement. This newer axle only comes in 110mm length, and my old skool triple clamps required on this project employ a 120mm axle/hub width.
So rather than waiting several months for old style axle clamps, stripping, anodizing and shipping, I decided to put the custom anodized axle clamps in a box to collect dust and build the fork with stock, black ano'd clamps. This was a "winter" project and it's almost summer....
Here is a pic of the lovely fork tubes, axle and clamps. Note the silver clamp on the right with the older threaded design for reference.
Parts were shipped out to White Brothers today. I would like to add that Eric at White Brothers has been super helpful and cool about all this custom funny business. Thank you very much White Brothers! Go buy their stuff.
