I had a pair of Salsa and i'm sure they measured 425mm from crown to where the top of the axel sits, not the center of the axel which is another 5mm so really a 430mm fork as most others i know like P2 measure to center of axel.

Frame is voodoo erzulie.......of which i have had 3........with many forks on.
420mm seems a tad too short for me.....440mm is a tad to tall...........yup i could run say a 1.95 on the rear and 2.1 on the front, good idea.........but i use samesize slicks at the moment.

If anyone has some 425mm Salsa and can measure exactly i would be grateful :D

What is your budget? If you have very specific needs consider a Waltworks or Tom Teesdale custom, known to be good value and good forks.

most races / base plates are different from each other to fit that specific head set cup / size / type of bearing......unless there is some kind of adaptor thingy ?...........cheers anyway pretty sure just chaanging to the Salsa will do it :D

Chris King and probably other brands do the deeper baseplates
