Hello all, I'm wanting a set of these forks pictured. They were pro only but I know JE James had a few sets to sell on so other bike shops may have too. Failing that I'll make my own so I'll be after some RS DHO lower legs or full fork, whatever you have. Thanks :)

Mate you have great taste, if i am ever to do a retro hardtail it would be have these forks, I assumed they were pro only too interesting to here there are a few out there, i dont think it would be to hard to replicate a pair.

I have a mate with a pair of dho's but the disc mount has a crack in it, hes prob going to sell for parts ill keep you in the loop. I told him to use v-brakes as its the disc mount that broke not the brace but hes keen to get rid of them

That would be great if he did want to sell them as i'll be using XTR V's anyway. Let me know if he ever wants rid :)

Likewise! Wasn't 97 the last really good one before the local scumbags rocked up and ruined the whole thing? My memory is a little hazy thanks to mr Stella artois! That and the old Cheddar Challenge weekender, bloody brilliant times for UK mountain biking events *not so much for my kidneys!
