Default Axel to Crown Length on Big One Inch fork

Just wondering if any one knows what the axel to crown Length on a Big One Inch fork for pre 96 suspension corrected bikes is.

I'm considering going for a Vicious Cycles fork while I wait for a possible Fat Chance fork and they seem to do either 425mm or 413mm lengths. Any ideas which one would be correct?

Thanks

Will

Default What does that fork look like!

Will would like to see that fork somewhere, that you are considering as your waiting replacement in lieu of the 'big one inch'. I have been considering the Ti rigid fork that 'Global cycles' are selling for 05. Have emailed them already to see if they would do a 1" steerer. Another option that i have brushed on is a 'no travel' fork from the guy that imports 'I#', know what i mean, don't want to have to go down these paths, really getting bored waiting for the pucker 'big one' to come out, cheers alan, bedford.

They're made my a well respected U.S frame builder and imported into the U.K by these guys:

Even though they're unicrown forks they have 1.5 offset which I think is right, plus you can have them painted to match your frame at extra cost.

Default Nice site

Will, thanks for the lead mate,reminds of a project two fork. Get this just ordered a merl#n oreas 05 and was looking for a rigid fork for this build, cos i want to fit discs front and back, looks like this could be a strong contender, was going for a pace 31, but somehow lost it since the RC30 days, let one of those go, bugger. alan, bedford.
