    He just emailed me and told me that another pair he sold a while back went for $128. I got these for $80.

    last time I checked, eBay wasn't a library or a charity. If someone wants to buy then sell it and someone buys it for more than its worth - that is their choice. There is nothing wrong with people paying too much for stuff on eBay in my opinion. Hell, I bought a pair of shoes from $15 and sold them 3 months later for $114. Guess what? I win.
    Don't get all over-sensitive because someone with money outbids you on something. Things could be worse.

    He was telling you the truth.


    I'd say flip it, get your profit, and buy a track fork. That rake looks awefully large to me.

    We'll see. I really like the look of the fork, so if the rake isn't too much more than the fork I currently have (came stock on the 2001 pista) I'll keep it.

    How is rake measured anyway?

    rake is the offset distance between the imaginary line that runs straight through the steerer tube and the line through the actual fork ends (or skewer).

    Track forks usually have a rake of 38mm or less. Some road forks (especially these older ones) have 50mm plus.

    if the fork rake is too great, your handling will suffer. if it does turn out that way, come over. I have a vise that can coldset the steerer tube into your preferred angle (to a certain degree—it doesn't perform miracles). people often ruin their forks by trying to set the blades themselves—that just ends up misalligning your front wheel!

    Steak - I will definitely take you up on that if the fork is too relaxed.

    I cannot find any info online about this fork or anywhere that sells just the fork. I asked the seller about the rake and he has yet to get back to me. I am just praying that it's not a fork from the Cinelli Super Corsa because the fork on that bike has about a 57mm rake.

    How much can your vise adjust the steer tube? 20mm??

    I'm talking about scammers, boy. Real scammers who use lure keywords like Cinelli, not Bianci, or simply have no history, or default on shipping. I'm all for our boy re-selling the forks and making a few bucks, becuase then the money stays in the community, like a circle. You're the one who's sounding a bit sensitive talking about being outbid. That is not the topic of discussion at all, where did that come from? Go ride your bike, we still love you. Peace.

    remedial reading - try again.

    and please - I don't need your love. If can't resell it on eBay, it has no value.

    uhm, hello?!? ... taco = compulsive liar?!?

    omg sean, I thought you'd call me on this, but I forgot you're canadian. if I coldset your steerer tube, it won't go into your head tube. if the rake is too lax there is nothing you can do but turn around and make a profit. sigh.

    Will you please put that fork on ebay? You've been pushing it for a month to anyone who mentions the word fork. Also, zero gal obviosly wants a threaded fork. //end rant.

    why can't you cold set the fork to a slightly different rake.

    i've had two crashes where i changed the rake on my fork by about 1-2 cm each time. no ill effects except more toe overlap and twitchy steering.

    i'd like to just throw it in a vice and undo the change in rake.
