Hi. Looking for a pair of Marin rigid forks for 1992 bear valley. For a 17.5 inch frame, 1 1/8 spinner fork would need to have around 145mm steerer tube.
Would consider slightly newer ahead steerer which would need to be around 170mm long.

Cosmetic condition not important as I will be painting anyway.

Thanks.

I may be able to assist - I will measure an ahead fork in the morning for you.

I've got some from a 1995 bear valley, 153mm threaded steerer. ok to use as is, some marks so a respray may be ideal.
