wtb hens teeth 1" - canti - straight bladed
I think nothing likes this exists, but if it does, and you are happy to post, let me know!
You mean 700 c?
oh, didnt realise i had missed that, yea 700c
Soma do a straight blade canti cyclocross fork
It's 1 1/8 inch.
@Brameses I did find one on ebay a while ago but it wasn't threaded. I guess you could get it threaded.
It was actually ali express but here it is: https://www.aliexpress.com/i/33034185673.html
thanks, i saw this, but i'm really on the look out for completely straight forks. Purely for looks!
Think you're only hope would be some retro CX forks. Be lucky to find some not attached to a frame though.
yeah, it does seem to be a losing battle! I've seen some mtb ones, maybe il just lopro it with a 26 front.
The only way I think you could do it is to get a 26 front with a v-brake that has a sliding brake pad clamp - you might still squeeze the 700c under there. I realise that the requirement for ‘looks’ probably disqualifies this as an option : )
Paul Components Motolite explainer here:
deffo starting to think that way, also saw these, I assume they have a locating pin on the back:
deffo ugly tho
A bit klunky, yes. But readily available and cheap!
Wound Up will make them for you:
damn, that is pretty cool. alas, very $$$$$
In that case you might want to add a broad figure you are willing to pay!
If it is sub £100, I would say that your best plan of action is to either move to a MTB type curved fork with cantis (there are plenty on eBay) or look for an old cyclocross complete bike (like a Peugeot or Alan) which you can split and use the forks of.
Depending on the budget you have, contacting a frame builder could be an option as well.
Was in contact with Orlowski regarding a similar fork, and the prices are in my opinion reasonable.
Upside is you could spec it exactly as you want it and it would be a brand new fork.
