Default Big 1' Fork Repros?

What ever happened to the rumors (a little over a year a go I think) about some one building some reproductions of the 1" rigid Fat Forks. from what I remember it was going to be Chris' ex or something like that. Sorry if this is re-hash. I have been sadly neglecting my Yo! for a bit but have recently rekindled the romance. :-)

I don't know a thing about this, but ran across this over at mtbr and thought you would be interested.

I've spoken to Chris about repros and he confirmed that he is making them. Sadly, I've misplaced his contact information.

Default Chris Igleheart

I've seen these forks before. The spelling threw me off a little. I think you can find them through Bikeman.com, that is, if you have the dough. (An example is at the following http://www.bikemannetwork.com/biking/p/IGLHRT-FKCROSS1) Good luck.

Default Bikeman

Just call Bikeman and tell them what you want, they will get Chris to custom make 1 inch headtubes 1 and 1/8 inch headtubes suspension corrected or non suspension corrected. You just have to be willing to pay, but Ithtink it is well worth it they are beautiful. Mine just got here from Bikeman today. Thanks guys!

Finally! Photo up! 1993 Yo Eddy, original owner, special ordered with clearcoat, custom Salsa threadless stem with roller, all XTR, Bontrager BCX-1 rims, White Industries Phantom Ti front hub, Ringle Moby Post. In mint condition because I drank the Rock Shox Kool-Aid around that time. Ironically, now that I am older, my Gunnar is now zero-travel with its new Igleheart fork. I met Chris at the NAHBS in San Jose and ordered the fork soon after.

Default BOI Repro

You will find everything you need here: http://www.iglebike.com/. Chris is a great guy I have been in contact with him several times and two Yo frames are on his way now to correct the famous rust problem. Since you live a few minutes away from me jawakaman get in touch and we can split the shipping cost

FYI: I have been in contact with jo eddy's friend but he does no longer make these forks.

Just bought a '91 Eddy on eBay, it will get full a resto from YoKris, rust treatment, the works. Got another coming soon, but that one is in great shape... we'll just keep in touch then...? Oh, I'd very much like to see the frame after Igleheart is done with it!

Moin moin Bengt!

Congrats! I'm looking forward bringing this Yo! back to life! If you want, I could also disassemble the bike. I mean, you could save shipping costs!


cheers,
Chris
