I seem to remember seeing a 1" Tange on the Universal Cycles website, the axle to crown might be a bit shorter than you are looking for though.
Good find, thanks. Right, it might be a bit short. AC of suspension fork is 420mm (w/o sag). Will try Tange if nothing else presents itself.bbrins said:I seem to remember seeing a 1" Tange on the Universal Cycles website, the axle to crown might be a bit shorter than you are looking for though.
Yup, first one on a Google search. Sounds ideal, but not available. Signed up for stock notification. Thanks.wv_bob said:Bikeman.com lists a 1" Kona P2, but out of stock, so you might try looking for one of those
It's for a Bridgestone MB-S. I believe it's the only Bridgestone that is actually suspension corrected. The Tange Infinity will put my front end about an inch or so lower and lower my BB. Concerned about pedal clearance. Not sure of HT angle, but it seems pretty slack. Steeper might be better. Thoughts?colker1 said:tange 1in 395mm A_C. It will change in a good way the handling.
Bikeman got a few 1in P2 back in stock, so I grabbed one. Nice fork. Almost pulled the trigger on the Tange, but since I wasn't in a rush decided to give it some time. Build is done and initial ride/handling was great. Will post pics of the soulful Frankenbike soon.wv_bob said:Bikeman.com lists a 1" Kona P2, but out of stock, so you might try looking for one of those
Thanks. Yup, two speed with original derailleur, thumb shifter and a Paul Melvin. Rides a lot like it looks. Simple and fun. Some grouches might cringe at what I've done with it, but it seems to fit the character of the frame pretty well. Still winter here and looking forward to some quality dirt time on it. Nice option to the techno rigs I've been riding...yo-Nate-y said:That looks fun. How are you liking the two speed? (or is it a dingle?)
Thanks, Bob. Running a 20t cog with 32t and 44t rings (stock MTB compact). Melvin can handle up to a 20 tooth difference. Neat product.wv_bob said:What cog and ring sizes are you running?
Not sure I'll ever put a front rack on it, but you never know. It is nice to have the option since I don't plan on parting with this bike again.rockhound said:Nice find.
I am looking for something similar, but for a Trek 830 "touring" bike I'm envisioning.
I wish that Kona fork wasn't a 410mm a2c 'cause like the rack mounts in the middle of the fork legs.
I don't think the 830s were setup for suspension.
Depends on the bike.bryanus said:Hate to hijack, but I've been looking for some 1-inch threadless forks for some time. I've heard good things about the P2, but after seeing it on arietz's mb-s, I'm not sure if I like how it looks. I'd be putting mine on a Ritchey P-21, whose original Ritchey logic fork had curved blades. I think the 410mm A/C would be ok for the P-21 considering it had a 63mm Judy SL originally (and I know an 80mm fork is about 434mm).
Problem (maybe not), is the Tange Infinity has an A/C of 390mm. But it looks more fitting.
What do you guys think would be best for the P21? (Besides the unicorn Logic fork!)
