The best answer I can offer is pretty relaxed - the frame has been designed as a road-going fixie. I believe the rake is longer than the other IRO fixed options (unless it's same fork/different headtube angle).

I emailed IRO about this a couple months ago. I pretty sure they told me 43mm.

Just built mark v and this fork has way too much rake! Will the all city 1" threaded fork work and be better or do you know of any other steel threaded fork (s) that would be??
