Here's a shot of some fork crowns I have in the cellar - (L) Tange Switchblade (Spinner-made) ; (M) PACE; (R) earlier Track 2 (Spinner-made)....
Bruce's fork looks very much like a rebadged Switchblade crown...with the straight 91 T2 legs. Am interested to know more about the fork recall - would that have been for this combination of crown and legs or just the 91 era? Maybe this was the interim solution before the P2s?
The sense that I'm getting from all the information is that this may be a 'prototype' build-up to see what it might look like for 92 ie. spray up a 91 Explosif, add those new Spinner crowns etc etc. It would be great if we could discover whether the build was put together at the factory or at the /distributors/dealers... were Pros frame only orders?
BTW Andrew - one pair of my early T2s came as standard on a Roberts Stratos e-stay, the others were acquired separately over the bay and came with the same dusty chrome finish as the Roberts (suggesting they weren't OEM Kona forks).
Hi Mr K,
the forks in your photo look very similar but not exactly the same as the ones I've got. Any ideas on how to properly identify my kit? Any serial n°s or details I should be looking for? That could help in case I want to sell them, which is very likely. Here's two more imgs.
thanks a lot,
edit: Tomorrow I'm going to the shop where I bought the bike to ask about the missing crown race (thanks again Anthony).
I'll try to get more information on this Explosif combo.
