It remains to check the adjustments, strip the bond areas and bonded on a jig.

Brave operation with the fork bonding! I guess it was a lucky coincidence that the Ti legs fitted over the steel crown? Did you have to alter the diameters of the different tubes in any way?

Thanks, I have made this fork with a Kona P2 and Litespeed first generation lower :roll:

I hope you will not mind... :oops:


Are you taking orders? Got the same broken titanium fork and a P2 is easy to come by...

Cheers

Great bike and effort. May i ask why you didn't build the homemade fork with RC mounts so you can RC brakes on both sides?

Best regards

Why ?
Because I do not have RC in stock and I really do not like these brakes.
This is not practical, it holds the mud and braking is not terrible.
These brakes are like many mythical things (Ringlé, ...) :wink:
