Was talking to my partner and frame builder here about R20's and how nice it would be to have a nice aftermarket fork with an adequate steerer length, modern 100mm spacing, bosses for cantis / v brakes, and eyelets and mounts to handle fenders, racks and low riders.
No-one makes one like this... yet.
Should have the beta version next month and will be having it built to retain the same rake / trail as the stock fork.
Since my bike will be in getting some other frame work done we will be able to test and fine tune the fork and make adjustments in the frame shop to really dial it in and will also test it with a front load to see how it performs.
He was not aware these little folders had such a passionate following and said that I would see if any other Twenty owners would be interested in acquiring one of these forks as if you design and build one... you could then build twenty and they might also appeal to other folder riders who want a little more from their forks.
But you don't want to build twenty forks and not be able to give them a home.
Cost will of course be a little more than a Sun EZ fork (2x) but can tell you that the man builds beautiful forks with wonderful ride qualities with a classic look to match the bike... thinking they will have sloping fork crowns and should have Reynold's forged dropouts to keep things British.
The Sun EZ is a adequate replacement but was not made to match the Twenty's geometry and it's a bulky straight legged thing that does not offer much damping quality and would like a touring quality fork that would match up well with narrower higher performance 100 psi tyres.
Anyways... thought I'd throw this out there and see who might be interested in something like this.
This is a non commercial offer (on my end) and I will just facilitate for anyone who is interested.
Wait til you see my new stem...
