    Colnago Fork - help identify

    I just bought this fork. Does anyone know a lot about these? I'd like to know:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=130292854515

    -what year
    -what bike (maybe master pista)

    with it being a 262 steer, maybe what size of bike it came from..

    any info on the geometry would be great, especially the rake!

    (the owner doesn't know)
    Thanks!

    not sure if it applies to the older curved units but iirc, when colnago switched to straight blades, they fixed their fork geometry at 43mm of rake/offset ,regardless of frame size
    The Precisa (straight blade) fork was introduced in 1987, so it's more likely mid-1980s. Due to variances in angles, tire clearance and headset stack height, you can't calcualte the exact frame size, but I'd say it's for a big racing frame, at least 60cm.

    Yea but I could cut that down and re-thread.

    Does the box look like its from the 80's? Maybe it's a re-issue?

    I hope it fits my Alien frame! The forks on the Alien have a 28mm rake.. yikes.
