When did you get here?!?!
there are one or two out there, but they are short, tank heavy, and made more for dirt jumping and so on. wouldn't work very well on a trail oriented 26" bike, much less a 29er, unfortunately.sean350 said:I've been wondering for a while why I haven't seen any rigid through-axle forks. Why did you decide to do it this way? It would be overkill for me, but if you likes 'em stiff... this is the way to go. Cool.

Well, I do likes 'em stiff... No, really, my fiance and I both have 20mm White Bros. suspension forks and I didn't want *another* wheel around that only fit one bike (or fork in this case). Also I am Eric, The destroyer of all bicycle parts. This is Walts attempt at building a fork that would withstand my riding style. My high speed downhilling has been noted as being as graceful as 'a bag of hammers' or 'a wounded rhyno on speed'.sean350 said:Why did you decide to do it this way?

Will do! It obviously still needs to be finished and um... finished. Once Walt completes the thing I think I'll be getting it chromed. Once all that's done I'll pound the hell out of it and report back.El Caballo said:Let us know how it rides...
Nope. One side is larger than the other, though. That's to accomodate the White Bros axel that I'll be using.lil hillbilly said:is it a 24mm axel?
No, that's the new 'lightweight' steerer!Wish I Were Riding said:The first WW without a crown? Might be tought to steer, even with tru-axel fork ends
