The fork runs on Timken taper roller bearings. Rex's design spreads the load on both the top and bottom equally and is adjusted via the titanium bolt through the centre.
God I wish I had a set !

I do like that - there was a guy in a bike shop that I worked in years ago with that very set up. weighed nothing at all


Was that the Fleet Street branch of Action Bikes in London, Circa 1997? I was thinking the very same thing. I worked there then and can't rememebr the guy's name. It was the very same set up - even the foam grips were the same.


Did you buy this bike complete or build it yourslef?


I built the bike myself over time, circa 97 I would have worked in one or two bike shops in London (but not Action Bikes). In the same period the bike would have changed its groupset from series 1 to series 2 XTR.
