BFSSFG Group Buy IRO Fork Dimensions

Hey all!

It's been a while since I've been on here. I've been riding my trusty IRO group buy frame for the last nine years and it's been going great. A few years back I got hit on the bike and the front fork was toast. I tossed on a Time carbon deal that I had laying around.

I went poking through IRO's website, but they seem to have slowed down a bunch.

I'm going to change up the build and I'd like to put a steel fork back on it. What dimensions should I be looking for?

* Rake?
* Axle-to-crown distance?

Thanks!

IIRC my IRO Mark V Pro's rake is 30mm, and axle to crown is 385mm. I think the group buy had the same geometry as the regular Mark V, which had 43mm fork rake if memory serves me correctly. I still have my Mark V Pro frameset but the front end was toasted from being doored.....

Innnteresting. That's really good to know.

I went digging through The Wayback Machine and found some info from IRO's old website. Here are geometry charts for their road frames circa 2007: https://web.archive.org/web/20070724...n=Custom&ID=18

Now to see if I can find some fork dimensions.
