    Seeking 1" Rigid 26" Fork with dual eyelets

    I recently bought a used mountain bike and the fork on it has a few stripped threads and the bike pulls to the left. I believe it was previously wrecked and I think the fork is no longer in alignment.

    As a replacement, I was hoping to find a new rigid fork with dual eyelets like those pictured on the dropout below. I've spent several days looking for a 1" threaded fork with dual eyelets and cannot find a dealer in the USA who lists any on their web page. If you know of any dealers who sell dual eyelet 1" threaded forks for mountain bikes, I would much appreciate your leads.

    Dual eyelets for fenders and a rack? If you can't find them, you can double up with single eyelets. I've done it on an older Trek road bike with single rear eyelets.

    I don't know where you are in Georgia, but your bike shop should be able to order on exactly like want from a wholesale company in Lexington, SC.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    A while back I replaced my rigid fork with suspension on my first mtb. I have since bought another mtb, a dual suspension kind, and started using my first one as an errand runner / beater. Also, after a few years of holding onto the original fork, I gave up and tossed it during a garage cleanup day. Needless to say, I'm now in the same boat as you are: looking for a 1" threaded fork for 26" mtb wheels. There is an outfit on the NET called "Universal bikes" (or something like it). Google Rigid Mountain bike forks and you'll find it. About 40-45 for a Tange CrMo fork

    Surely you've got a local guy that would have one for you. You know, the guy with all the bikes in his yard and a garage full of parts?

    Thanks for all the tips (despite the age of my request), unfortunately none of those suggested above seem to have the dual eyelets and are threaded for 1" steerer.

    Tange advertises on their site (at least they did last year) such a fork, but finding one is tough.

    You did not say if there was a budget but, you can get a set of forks made. I would guess cost would be $200-$450.

    Igleheart
    Independent Fabrications
    Seven

    Many others I would imagine.
