    thorn sherpa forks

    I was looking at buying a thorn Sherpa frame and building it up. I have a giant boulder with a surly fork. I was shopping on SJS cycles website, and saw they sold a Sherpa fork. I know the Sherpa bike is set up for 26' wheels. I wondering if the fork could be used on a MTB frame, like my giant boulder frame. I think the fork is 1 1/8 threadless. Just one of my afternoon muse.

    I emailed thorn cycles, and they recommended Mt Tura forks. It should fit most MTBs

    The Thorn Sherpa fork does not have the dimensions needed to replace a suspension fork. The Mt Tura fork will be suitable to replace most 80mm suspension forks. Hope this helps.
