As title, ive just acquired these forks and theyre of no use to me at all, had to google them to find out what they were..


Description stolen from a bikeradar review..


It's made from high-end Sanko Japanese chromoly tubing, which is better quality than regular chromo and makes it super strong and rigid. Add Charge's usual cool minimalist graphics and you get a simple, clean-looking fork.

The Nozzle's geometry is based on a 95mm-travel suspension fork and it feels sweet hammering through the streets pulling manuals or doing bunnyhops. The fork is aimed at serious dirt jumpers though - there are V-brake mounts (adjustable for 24 or 26in wheels) but no disc brake mount. The brake mounts can be removed to make an even sleeker looking fork if you aren't running a front brake.

Another unique feature is the internally threaded steerer tube, which means you don't have to fiddle around with a star nut; you just push the steerer through your stem and tighten up the internal nut, which is hollow so you can run brake cables through the steerer tube.


Theyre in pretty good nick, no dents or damage that i can see, there is some surface rust on them but nothing to worry about at all, and they have the internal nut/threaded topcap thing too (no brake bosses though)

Not got a clue on their worth (other that seeing the original retail price) so ill take a guess at £40 posted!
