I got a set of the unpainted ahead forks a while ago. They are of a similar build quality to the frames and not too heavy, unlike a set of gas-pipe nasty ones I got from a private listing before those.
I haven't got round to painting them up yet, but I'd have no problem using them on one of my bikes.
In terms of clearances, you should be fine with a 2.25 tyres, but I'll measure the distance between the fork legs next time I'm in the loft.
You can have my old nasty lead weight ones for the price of postage if you want.
PM me if you're interested.
