Selling as I've found some slightly longer ones for my Attack Trail project.

They are clean and tidy, the steerer is very smoothly cut down to 189mm but no star-nut is fitted as I used an Azonic Headlock which I'd be happy to chuck in as I have a spare! Axle-to-crown measurement = 510mm.

Compatible with v-brakes and disc (up to 8" / 203mm rotor via recently faced IS mounts), they are currently fitted with genuine Marzocchi v-brake boss blanking bolts, which cost me £15 recently, but I will supply the original v-brake bosses, and a spare coil spring as well.

Preload adjustment at the top of each leg is via allen key underneath two rubber caps. For standard 9mm quick release front wheel, they have a polished alloy crown with magnesium stanchions and black 'M' arch and lowers.

They are very plush under compression and smooth when rebounding, have no play, the seals and stanchions are in excellent condition as are the red decals.

Weight = 1.95kg as shown in photos. I'm looking for £75 ono posted in the UK including spare spring, v-brake bosses & blanking boss bolts 8)

9mm standard QR drop-outs, 'Open Bath' lowers & recently faced IS disc mount:

these are nicer forks, but the DropOffs have better geometry for the frame I think :?

the Drop Offs are 130mm travel as well but they're 540mm a-c so more like a 140-150mm fork
