Don't know how precisely the measurements must match, but here's something close.

The rake is really close, but the one you suggest is 17mm longer than stock (which I would consider too long). Thanks though!

Jenson sells a couple of steel 1" canti mount forks but the rakes are only 44 to 45 mm which will slow the responsiveness noticable. A 52 mm rake sounds like it came from a touring bike with a very slack head tube angle.

I can come within 2mm of the rake and be 17mm off on the length or I can get close on the length and rake is way off. I'm hoping someone knows of an off-the-shelf solution that is reasonably close on rake and length. Thanks
