Designed for the front end of our Long Haul Trucker touring frame, this fork sports a beautiful investment cast sloping crown and dropouts brazed to curved blades, dual eyelets at the dropouts for fenders and a rack, threaded bosses brazed into the fork blades for mounting a lowrider rack, and cantilever studs which work with canti or linear-pull brakes. It has a 1-1/8" threadless steerer, and you have the option of choosing from 2 sizes: 700c (390mm axle to crown) or 26" wheel (376mm axle to crown).
