Fork Identification help
Can anyone help me identify the fork on the bike pictured below? I rode it during a Learn to ride the track session here in Ontario and thought the fork was pretty nice.
The bike is a custom True North cycles frame. I emailed the builder and the only information he gave me was: "That is a basic Taiwan carbon track fork. ~$150."
Any idea where I could find something similar to this. It seemed to be track specific (no brake hole) and very tight clearances. So far I have only been able to find road forks like this.
Here is a side shot with the fork:
Any help would be awesome!
If you're in touch with the builder, I suggest a follow-up email asking for a bit more details - like where you can buy one yourself.
You have the best access to the information you want right now.
Yeah, I guess so. I just assumed since I already asked what fork was on it that he perhaps didn't want to do reveal any other details. I kinda feel bad asking him about it seeing as I am not interested in a frame (nor could I afford one!) and I don't think they sell components on their own like that. Thought it may have been something that was common and rebranded (much like lots of the "exotic/white brothers/saso carbon MTB forks" that are all the same. Thanks.
It was probably supplied to True North by Cycles Marinoni in Montreal. They get them from Trigon in Taiwan. Trigon supply people like Ritchey etc.
Contact Luc at Marinoni and he can tell you what it is and supply you. firstname.lastname@example.org
