It seems odd to me that with so many titanium frames being made that there is not a similar choice in rigid titanium forks.

Just about every rigid Ti bike I have seen is matched with a carbon fork.

So where are the Ti fork manufacturers?

If Ti is not good enough for the forks, then why are we using it for frames?

(Speaking as a man with a Ti framed bike with carbon forks :) )

Black Sheep. James did a titanium fork for my Independent Fabrication Titanium Crown Jewel. There's quite a bit of wait time, but well worth it.

Why stop at the titanium fork, though?! Gotta get a titanium stem and seat post to match. :thumbsup:

I gather the price point of titanium forks prevents it from being a more popular option.

I'm gonna risk it...

I have a rare 1" steering tube straight-leg Spicer titanium fork. Some riders have had failures of Spicer forks, but mine has been great over the last few years. I don't think Gene Spicer makes them anymore.

There are ti forks available on fleabay made in the far east (MOSSO, TACC).

Only 4 for sale on eBay at the moment, but a zillion carbon forks. Looks like it is mainly a custom built niche.

Shame, they look really pretty all polished up.

Nice bike misterdangerpants :)
