As above. Should be of some kind of known brand, in decent condition, black. Anyone got something please?
Interested in a columbus minimal? Carbon steerer 1 inch slightly raked. Need to measure tho
I’ve got one Tifosi and another Profile.
PM if interested
(PMed both, still looking for more options)
I bought a Tifosi 1” one a while back that takes mudguard and a 28. It’s fine. Ally steerer.
Meaning you're considering selling it on? Or are you recommending them? I've seen Triton Cycles offers them, it's one of the 'buy new' options I'm considering.
Soz, was just saying I have one, not selling right now, but yeah a recommendation of sorts - simply cos it’s unusual it takes a muddy.
No worries, cheers - so out of interest, do you have the mudguard version then? Or are even the 'normal' ones wide enough?
Yep. It has a sort of scalloped top to accept a guard, I’ve got a ~35mm one in there just.
No idea about other forks.
Still open to suggestions if someone has a used one they'd like to sell.
... and still looking...
Still haven't found anything, so far the steerers were always just a bit too short...
I have a rare full carbon Colnago Star Carbon fork for sale with 26,5 cm of steerer here in Denmark. Not cheap though. Selling for what equals 213 gbp + shipping.
Here's a link to my local classifieds ad with a few pics:
Thanks, that is a very nice fork, but unfortunately too expensive. Also it would be wasted on my bike!
Still looking, 1" forks really seem to be rarified nowadays.
you can get a hylix 1 inch carbon fork for 70 beans on eBay, i order one a few weeks back, hopping it arrives soon, will let you know quality when it arrives!
I know, that's what I'm getting if I really can't find anyone selling something used. Would appreciate some report about the quality!
One last push before I give up - anyone have anything out there?
A lot of good enough opinions on new hylix. Also used 1" forks (IMHO) all come with a good bit of unknown history and some of them tend to be quite flexy.
I've done at least 10 rides on my Hylix now and think it's a nicer fork than the steel De Rosa one it replaced.
Cheers guys, I think I'm going to pack it in and just buy the Hylix. To be honest, it wasn't just about being sceptical about "crabon", it's that I was hoping to find something a bit more 'bladed', and possibly a bit more 3k rather than UD (which is why the modern Columbus minimal isn't great for my purposes either, apart from being £100 more than the Hylix).
I do have one question: maximum clearance is listed as '25mm', I'm planning on using rims that are a tiny bit wider than that - will that still work, or is it actually 25mm clearance?
I have 26mm tires and there's room for bigger
Perfect, that's great then - thanks! :)
Bought the Hylix 1" fork off ebay now - seller is marked as 'away till Feb 16th' but seems to have shipped them already anyway, fingers crossed. I paid for the slightly faster shipping, it's like £2 more but should see them here at least 2 weeks earlier - again fingers crossed!
In any case thanks to everyone who weighed in on this, and thanks to everyone who had an older fork lying around whom I had to disappoint because the steerer was 5mm too short - sorry but I really didn't have any room to play with there!
Anyone who wants a report on how the fork's performing in the future, send me a message - at this point, I'm curious to see it myself.
