Hi,
Looking for a rigid fork to test out some monstercross project. There is a nice surley on ebay. But i would rather have one that dont pulls a heavy 1½ kg in the front of the bike... Steerer dont have to be more than say 16-17cm long, 1-1/8".

regards
jakob

On One 135mm steel ? Not sure what your project is, but a 135 hub would beef things up quite a bit!

I have a carbon/alu kinesis mtb fork. Its uses and I'd need to check the steerer length but I think its long enough for you.

If interested I'll grab some pics.

Heres are some pics. It's in decent shape, a few Mark's here and there to the lacquer and black painted parts, but nothing to worry about. Steerer is around 180, axle to crown 450ish.

Iirc its carbon wrapped alloy so a strong fork.

After £50 plus post which should be under a fiver.

Hi Ishaw, Thanks for the pictures.
To be honest, I cant really make up my mind if this is actually the way I want to go. i will have your kind offer in my hear.... But first I think I better be more certain on how i actually want to go with this frame... Sorry for being a bit of a timewaster
