I've been following the track bike's progress on you blog- that external crowned(is that the right term for it?) fork looks VERY cool. Is that the crown that had the built in rake? Where did you find it? Assuming that my first frame is rideable , I'd like to build a straight blade fork for it.
Yes, the external crown is pre-raked. The fit is loose enough to allow the rake to be tailored. This crown came from Ceeway in England, but I believe that Nova also handles it here in the states. www.framebuilding.com = ceeway www.novacycles.com = nova
