I'm deciding on what fork to use. I'm leaning rigid.

And I think I'll keep the GT stem too.

That's a nice early frame. 8)

I think those yellow Bologna forks would look good with it. Maybe get the Kore stem re-finished to match?

Actually I was thinking I would refinish both the GT stem and fork in matching black. I have a LX M560 groupset for it that will look good with the color combo. I also have a red titec hell-bent handlebar and I thought I might use it with someone red anodized trim pieces.

I've been trying to find information on this fork. From what I have found I think this is a Bologna lite single butted fork. Can anyone confirm this and explain the various versions of this fork?

The original fork may have been the adjustable rake version (3D?) with the adjustable stem. I'm running a double butted Bologna fork on my Zaskar

There is a thread on here somewhere that discusses the relative weights of the SB & DB Bologna Lite forks.

I also seem to remember that they will have either SB or DB stamped onto the steerer, but it could be a false memory?

I've got a single butted fork tucked away, so I'l have to dig it out & check.

I have a double butted version on my '93 Zaskar and it rides really nicely with it.
