    Could a 29er fork be built from...

    Could a 29er fork be built from a bolted crown (a la Bontrager) like this one:

    If so, what could be used for blade?

    Thanks!

    Can you get that part retail?

    You could just use 4130 tubing, probably .049 wall, I'm assuming that the stock being held by that is a round tapered blade? There is a thread on another forum about high end custom 29er forks being made with straight tubing, and BMX type DOs.
