the fork on my bareknuckle is 1", yet every website i go to says it should be 1 1/8. i know it's the original fork, but im confused as to why mine would be smaller. did eai make 1" in prior years or something?
also, would the rake have changed with the steerer size? business cycles says 35.5 but i want to be sure that's correct because i have to buy a new fork. thanks.
I know they've changed a little bit in each run - I know some people had BKs with cable guides and some other brazeons that 'shouldn't' be there. It wouldn't surprise me if they did a 1" steer tube at some point.
Do you still have the original fork? I would try to measure the rake (or call / email EAI - they've been helpful the couple of times I've dealt with them).
also, "offset" is the same as rake right? and is there a +/- i can go off in regards to a new fork's rake? i've been looking a little and it's difficult to find one that's 35.5
what about this spicer fork?
what do you guys think about that as a replacement?

i would love to get a bareknuckle fork for my steamroller and i think the steamroller fork would be a good replacement, it's probably really similar to the spicer probably similar price too
