I have a Van Nicholas on my pompino with canti and mudguard mounts, like new on eBay for under £100
Just went and got one of the Brother Kepler carbon forks to turn my pomp into a SS disc cross bike / mudguard-equipped SS road/gravel bike at a pinch.
Not cheap. Let's see how it goes.
In the world of sporks and radventures etc £150 isn't so bad. Post a pic when it's on the pomp?
I have a Kepler in size small with the carbon fork and I am running 700x43 with some toe overlapping problems. Do you know of any fork with ~55 rake (like the fork for the Shand Stoater in size small)? Thanks
First ride (offroad) on one of these this morning: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hylix-1-1-8-700c-42-Disc-Brake-Carbon-Gravel-Fork-100-12mm-Flat-Mount-Cyclocross/293239603223?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
Real weight uncut = 505g
Doesn't happen to be drilled at the front of the crown does it?
Unfortunately not. Only the back.
Going to have soon available (hopefully new frame will be with me in the next couple of days) a Kepler Carbon fork for sale if interested (London). Thanks
Bit late but.......still availible?
Ritchey have a new fork.
I have a guy that asked to reserve it until the end of the next week! I will let you know if he changes idea
Looks great but pricey. Guards, cages and >2" clearance.
Edit: Oh I'm stupid, just seen this was posted above already
Just missing a light mount on the front of the crown and the ability to run a small front rack for bag/basket duties!
Maybe someday a company will tick all the boxes.
I'm sick of telling people, there is just no demand for it.
aha, Cinq touring are the only ones with the whole shebang goin on.
I guess they're super tough but it's a shame they're not 100g lighter.
Crust evasion lite has a straight 1 1/8" carbon fork on the front, wonder whether it'll be available separately?
You still alive on this fork? Seems to be one of the few relatively affordable through axle straight non tapered disc forks....
Yup! Used it winter/spring 2-3 times a week, mostly riding epping trails. Now it's on the shelf as I built up a Niner RLT 3 months ago (https://www.lfgss.com/comments/15314612/)
