Thats the same?

I have MBA at home where is test but with Rock Shox... they love it :lol:


Only thing different looks the frontbrake-cablerouting through the stem...

And I am looking for Accutrax (or kona P2) forks (but with 240mm steerer....:()

Only thing is that I think the geometry of mine is suspension ready so with Accutrax forks it will be very steep.
Or am I just wrong, cause with the current Salsa forks it's riding very nice and I think that is one with
suspension correction (headset till fontaxle is 420 mm now)...... :?

I have the same salsa fork 430mm ..........listed 425mm, with the more modern logo on it ( 425 without wheel axel, 430mm to center of QR with wheel in, for older 80mm-100mm ! ) They do a 445mm too for more modern 80mm-100mm so they say.............. mine rides fine but when i was using a P2 at 410mm it was much more balanced on my 97 kona, but like you i need a long steerer tubed one. An older style Salsa ? or Surly........Pace at 410mm ?
