Wow good find, that's a new option, at least to me. Fork geoemtry identical to the Surly, but the IRD is more expensive. I wonder if the curved Tange blades make for a lighter or maybe not so rock-hard fork?
Looking forward to the first reviews, to hear what makes it worth the extra cost over the Surly.
Sorry I'm no help to you.

I have 2 of them...

I have the 420mm MTB ones on my MC and the straight leg 700c Cross forks on the Ferrous fixie / 28er.

They are nice forks that ride well and have a little "spring" in them.

sounds good

Thanks for the info. This might be the fork for my new ENO disc Blizzard. I have a 2001 bomber (80mm) on the bike but the frame made for a 100mm. I would love to pony up for a Kelly but I also would like to get a pair of Mary bars and I this would keep price in my range.
