Taken from an email I received from Vicious Cycles:

Brian,

we are using a 38mm (1.5") offset. the weight is 2.5 pounds. they cost $250 with a stock color of black. ANY custom color is available for an additional charge of +$40. delivery is 2-3 weeks.

thanks again,
Vicious Cycles

Great news...I always liked their 26" forks, I'm sure the 29"ers will be great as well.

Must be really nice, for a non-custom fork with less offset than a Reba and a weight identical to the $80 KM fork. Walt's forks ARE custom, cheaper, and lighter. Not sure if color choice is free.

I know people can get really passionate for their favorite brand, I just don't always get it :)

Any pics to convince me?

haha nice one Cloxxki...

kill the messenger.

Thanks for posting though, more options are always nice, market will dictate what's overpriced, cough cough $400 Strong fork. :eek:

Any word on what the axle-crown is?

Wouldn't give up my Walt fork for either.

I heard this one set you back a pretty penny, sir. I bet you got your money's worth out of it, though. :eek: Drevil said he has more where this came from, so keep your mouth shut, smart ass.

It makes sense to use carbon fiber. Flexier and not so cold to the touch. Can you get custom sizing?

Old news, already passed it on...

I'm surprised you didn't see it on the Frederick ride? Especially the way Ricky rides, sit, stand, sit, stand, sit, stand, sit, stand... When I gave it to him he did need to order the XL fist for it, so you should be able to test his bike out.

:D
