    20" carbon fork

    Does anyone know where a 20" carbon front fork, preferably with v-brake style brake bosses can be located? Alloy steerer is fine, and I would prefer metal dropouts...

    You didn't say which size steerer, but try Bent Up Cycles: http://bentupcycles.com/itemdetails.cfm?id=448

    Get your wallet out.

    Heh! Yeah, maybe you can buy a 700C fork for $129.95, but not a 20-incher!

    Forgot about that... 1". Hmmm... checked out the site. Suddenly, learning to ride a 700c highwheeler is looking REALLY good. I was thinking of going that direction, but was worried about reach issues when stopping... and the worst part is I won't know for sure until I do the conversion.

    Hmmm... 700c here I come.
    Will I even notice a difference between 650 and 700??

    $350US for a 20" fork??? Am I missing something?? (Yes, I know there isn't much market, etc etc.)

    I've never looked, but I suspect that a 650C is only a little more expensive than a 700C fork. 650C is a less popular size, but 20" forks are *really* low volume animals.
