Flat Fork Crown

I am looking for a flat fork crown that will work as a straight blade fork. Oval blades. 1 1/8"

Anyone know where I can get one?

Man, I wish someone was doing a crown like that- I've seen several flat and sloping crowns with a built in rake, but never one sized for 1 1/8. ceeway.com has about the best selection.
If you are able to find one, post it up here.

I think what you want is a flat crown that not only will fit a 1 1/8" steerer, but also with the sockets canted about 7 degrees so you can have the straight-bladed look you want with an appropriate amount of rake. Unfortuately, I don't think there is a flat crown out there that has the 7 degree rake built into it. Therefore, you will have to put the rake in the blades and have a curved (not straight-blade) look. Sorry.

You could ask Heidi at Nova, they have a lot of stuff that isn't online. For instance I ordered a 1.125" stearer sloping shoulder cross crown from them, and accidentally got a 1" with the angled blade sockets you want, but not flat shoulder. It wasn't listed online at the time. Same with tubes, there are all kinds of things thay don't list. What you are looking for would seem to me to be a bit of an aesthetic contradiction, I don't mean that in the sense of a criticism of taste, just that the efficiency of the straight blade is sorta post that retro crown look, but you don't know till you ask I guess.
