I think that the fork as a stand alone product is definitely on Sean's radar, but keep in mind that Rawland is a really small company. To get two new frames done and out there for sale has been a huge undertaking for them, and along with that, the fork went through a couple of iterations before they signed off on it.ATXSS said:Cool looking bike. Is this model optimized for drop bar geometry? (e.g. shorter TT than a standard MTB)
Nevermind, I just looked at the geos and a medium has a 56cm TT so it seems more drop bar specific for sure. This is cool, but I'd like nice standard MTB fitting retro-stylized frameset with that fork crown for regular non-suspension SS applications. I'd need at least a 23.5 TT for a flat bar however and even the large frame only translates to 22.8 (which is fine for drops.)
I'm confused by their bull-moose bar product. Is it not meant for their bikes? (unless you want to run it super short circa 1992 Ritchey geometry style)
Hmm, seems like if Rawland made some standardized geometry forks (one susp. corrected and one non-susp. corrected) painted black they could sell a bunch to the rest of us with regular 29 SS bikes who just like the lougged look.
