    Axle to Crown Length 386mm
    Crown Race 26.4

    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.

    Yeah, it Seems I Can't Have It Both Ways

    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
