Where to get Downtube forks?

Hi all,

I am after a pair of 20" threaded 1 1/8 forks with v brake bosses for my Dahon. I am pretty sure the downtube folders use them but am not sure who stocks parts.

Can someone confirm that they will suit a 100mm standard front hub as I need that width for my project?

I am in Australia

Cheers
Derek

The Dwontube forks are indeed 100mm. You can order them from Downtube website. Let me know if you are going to... we might share postage?

Just one thing... the steerer needs to be the right length.

Thanks Jur,

Just had a look on their web site but Australia is not in the shipping list. Postage looks it might be a deal breaker with $250 to the UK...OUCH
