    Looking for a tight fork

    OK, ive been trying to find one for a while.

    Everytime i see forks from lets say: Cpicer sycles or similar aftermarket forks i dont know how tight is it going to be.

    Im looking for a track, threaded fork that will barley clear 23c, almost liek a Nagasawa fork or something in that same shape

    heres my buddies fork, seems that it was grinded down to fit 23c, so may be it was originally designed for 22c or 20c?







    im trying to find something similar. Just like with this one, undrilled, almost straight with a bit of a bent in the end.

    So i dunno how tight the Cpicer forks are?

    Anyone knows a place i can buy one?

    thanks

    That's fairly typical treatment for a track fork -- cut the blades really short, then take a half-round mill ******* to the bottom of the crown to get clearance for the tire.

    Interesting. It appears the blog software doesn't like the word B A S T A R D even though that is the proper name for this particular tool.
