Patience is a virtue which will be richly rewarded :wink:

Seriously, i've just not had time to take any yet, but will try to get some tomorrow afternoon together with a spec list. I bought it with straight chrome forks, but put HSC3 carbon ones on soon after, and managed to loose the original ones in a house move :cry: Am toying with the idea of having some made up and chromed.

i just got a pair of straight blade columbus unicrown aheadset forks made up for my peugeot (soon to be put up on readers bikes)
Custom made by Steve Goff - took a little while and not cheap but look the part.
Alternatively if you search ebay you may be able to get some new as there are a couple of manafacturers (US mainly) who do straight bladed/lugged forks

when are we going to see some pictures? :wink:

forks cost 160 - fully custom built and painted.
I dare say SG could make you a pair just like that but i expect the chrome would cost a bit...
other than that maybe Bob Jackson could make you a pair?

Yes, i got those because the fork column was slightly to short for the oversize stem and the 5mm spacer now recommended on top of the stem. Had the LOOK decals made to the same size as the originals.

We've got a lively group out on a Sun, Yesterday we had 2 Elites and the bronze medalist from the recent national 100 champs........18 mph average for a very hilly 80 miler.
