Seen these on the flea bay.

Im after a set of 400mm+ forks (A-C) with 200mm+ steerer. saw these and they seem fit for purpose. just not familiar with these. weight wise im unsure , but they come at a reasonable price and carriage free and ready to go with the bosses included...

Up until recently I had a pair on my Saracen - see pics in my signature.

Well made fork. 250mm steerer. 420/425mm AtoC.

IIRC about 1400g on my kitchen scales. Not light and possibly incorrect :lol:

Felt more like a dirtjump/trials fork in use - quite harsh but thats comparing it with my Salsa Cromoto's.

Its well worth the money though if you need a long steerer.

BTW the canti mounts are non removable.

you say canti mounts, but i'll be running v brakes...or do you say canti mounts because thats what they are...a mount for a canti lever system of braking (which i assume vbrakes are any way)...... :? :shock:

Similar to these in length and price

http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/FOOOCR26DV/ ... rake--disc

more colours here though and slightly neater should you go with a disc set up in the future.

yes, these are nice, i have been looking at these also. but they don't include the brake bosses - these add quite a bit more to the original price :(
