Sooo, the forks arrived from CTK. Nice, light Spinner jobs. I then weighed the stems I had. Since the steerer on the new forks was longer, I could fit a canti hanger, meaning I no longer needed one with cable routing. In the end, I re-fitted the Zoom one. The bike is too big for me, so the Keirin may go on at a later date.

Forks in, brakes set-up. I added a bit of inner tube around the headset to keep the cack out.

In the flesh, the blue forks are actually a good match to the blue of the decals.
