    I commissioned this three-segment fork from famed bike builder Frank The Welder. It's steel and made of True Temper blades. It's built strong, has quick release dropouts and has disk tabs. It came raw and I sprayed it with a little acrylic clear. It hasn't seen much use and I've always ridden it in the dry. It's been sitting off the bike for a while so wondering if anyone would like it. It's a lovely piece of work. It'll fit 26, 27.5 and 27.5+ and maybe a 29 (if i had one to measure). Included measurements below.

    Specs:
    - 460mm axle to crown
    - 420mm axle to top of fork (tire clearance)
    - 92mm width near the top (3.6")
    - 8" steerer
    - Quick release dropouts, standard spacing
    - Disc tabs

    $250
