Does anyone know of a supplier or retailer in the US who could get any of the Tange fork models T-2401, T-2406, or T-2407? I like the way they look but I am not able to find anything. Also, does anyone know what the specs are, steer tube dia, threaded/threadless, etc?
By the way, you can see them here: http://www.tange-design.com/tange_2007/forks2.htm

I'm pretty sure IRD interloc racing design has what you want. I just got a lugged road fork, 1 1/8" , standard reach brakes from them-its marked Tange Infinity double butted. I ordered direct-they were really slow to answer email questions-but after placing order I got my fork in a couple days. Biketiresdirect also carries these-for a bit cheaper-but they are temporarily closed because of fire. Try their site too.

Thanks. I noticed that Soma also sells similar forks and IRDs as well. I looked into Surly but their forks are not Tange made nor tubing.

FWIW- the invoice said something like Soma/IRD/Merry-I think it's all the same company or distributor whatever.

I've been looking for a fork to replace my damaged Mercier Kilo TT stock fork. Couple people have recommended those models on Tange fork, but I can't seem to find anyone who stocks them either.
Here are a few similar forks I've also been checking out. Not sure if any of them are appropriate...
- Tange t-2407
- Soma 23024 steerer
- Surly Steamroller
- Scattante SSR

Universal Cycles has a wide variety of forks including Tange: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopping/index.php?category=1640

John is correct. The Soma Lugged Track forks at Universal Cycles seem to be the Tange models as well.

Ordered a Soma Lugged Track Fork today. Hopefully it'll work out.
